How eerie was it to pack up your classroom this year? It was like a memorial with all the students' work everywhere, finished and unfinished, unfulfilled intentions, as quiet as a tomb. #covidpoetry
One of my Kinders refuses to go to the bathroom at school. I have a bathroom in my classroom and there is a bathroom at the playground. He will hold it until he wets his pants. I have tried everything that I know of to get him to use the bathroom. I’ve talked with my principal and the school counselors and have tried everything that they have come up with. Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?
Google Classroom and Zoom was on the fritz all morning. Lord, I have never worked so fast at multitasking of talking to a few students on Zoom, the rest of the students through Go Guardian, texting parents through ClassDojo, and calling parents. I was only able to teach math and science 🤣
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
Is anyone else teaching from a trailer this year? They are building a bigger school, so I hope to have a regular classroom next year.
I need to revamp my intervention plan for foul language in the classroom. I can’t believe what these middle schoolers are saying and how little admin. does about it.

Anyone else switch firms recently (or to industry) and really struggling with not only the role, but being part of your team? Seems my team has know each other through multiple projects and I feel like an outsider, not doing so hot on the project either...worried about my future here
What is the difference between working in consulting in SF vs. NYC? Looking to relocate after UG, but want to make sure I'm making the right decision. I'm thinking about WLB, network, exit opp, culture, price, quality of life, etc.
What are each firm’s “incentives” for being promoted to Senior Manager? EY used to have a promo bonus ($6,500) but took that away starting last year. Curious what other firms do?
Hello, we recently built out a technology team at our company. They are a phenomenal team with great work flow, rapport and collaboration however, most are junior in their career which can make it difficult for our senior lead to step away. They all receive professional dev allowances so we would like to work toward identifying possible future leads and laying out a growth plan. Do any of you have best practices, tips or resources in doing this specifically for tech talent?

Anyone who has ever considered working for the IRS should apply now. They are conducting virtual interviews over the next few weeks. It seems wide spread and to be all divisions.
My PA CPA license is currently in process. I need to get licensed in IL as that’s my home state now but couldn’t apply directly due to not meeting IL education requirements. Should I atleast get my IL application started and submitted and submit the PA license to them whenever I get it? I know it takes like 2 months for them to even get to your application. I’m working up against a promotion so time is essential
Promotion year and not promoted due to COVID-19 VS. getting laid off: which one is worse?
Attempting to lateral between Big 4's to switch practice lines. Not sure how to explain why I don't just stay at my current firm and work with the group that does the type of work I'd like to do - truth is I briefly worked with them and loved the work but couldn't stand working with the team members at all. Is a sufficiently explained 'not a cultural fit' adequate here? Will they even care? I also doubt my practice line would approve the transfer since we're understaffed.

Hope it’s ok to share this here — figured we all love dogs and might have some Alaska miles going stale 💜
I judge people with poorly trained dogs. I mean dogs that bark all the time, jump all over people, try to steal food, etc. I’ve never understood why anyone would get a dog if they’re not willing to train it.
