What is the job description of a teacher? At what point should we set boundaries regarding what we are being asked to do in the classroom on a psycho-social level? Teachers should be empathetic, stern, and kind, but at what point does that cross the line into therapy? Is it the teachers turn to push back regarding our job descriptions?
My district is looking for suggestions on ways to modify our special ed program. Ours is making life hard for our general ed classrooms. Does your district have a model you would suggest?
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.
Why do you teach? What gifts and talents do you bring to your classroom, your school, the profession?
My 2 year old is a sensitive little guy and often cries at daycare drop off. Today, as I turned to leave, I saw his little face crying “mama” through the door of his classroom 😭 now I’m sobbing too...
Do you have a place where you're able to lock up your stuff in your classroom? I don't and I'm not sure if I should make a big deal about it.
So, I had to be away for two days. On my way back into town, I stopped at my classroom, just to make sure it was still standing. The sub had rearranged my stuff and taken candy (that I had intended to give to the office workers) and said she gave it to one of my classes. I am livid. Am I over reacting?
We just started using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System in our programs to measure quality of interactions and lesson plans. I think it's been one of the most meaningful tools for providing feedback to teachers.

True or false: If you ran your classroom the way admin ran the school, you’d get endless complaints from students/parents.
My students have been obsessed with using the magnifying glasses. We have explored with them inside and outside of the classroom. I was thinking about maybe creating a scavenger hunt....any ideas?

Ok…I’m curious. I pretty much have to beg, barter and steal to get supplies for my classroom. Do teachers in states with legal cannabis have this problem? It’s my understanding that sales tax from its purchase goes to schools, or is that all smoke and mirrors…No pun intended. 😉
What is your max class size for the year? Is that number based on a virtual or in person classroom?

Does anyone have an archive of consulting prep casebooks, courses/programs (think iGotAnOffer, MConsultingPrep etc) ? I am preparing for MBB interviews (unsuccessful last year) and have limited money to spend on these programs. I am willing to swap my case materials (including paid structuring drills course from crafting cases). Thank you!!
Will a cover letter significantly help my application while applying to MBB? Or significantly hurt if I don’t attach one? There’s nothing unusual about my resume to explain (i.e. employment gaps, reapplication, etc) so my CL would primarily be explaining why I want to work for the firm.

Neither of my parents have a 401k, investments, or savings. They have nothing. I want to help them retire at 65 which would be about 15 years away. I’m looking to put about $15k/ year until then into an account for them. A couple questions i have though: 1. What type of investment account would be best to maximize? 2. Once gifted to them, will they be taxed if they receive a certain amount? I have little to no knowledge in investing so I’m open to any other ideas and/or advice.
Does anyone have any good recommendations on a robust customer service training for employees?
Hi folks, New joiner!! I do see a lot of negative feedbacks on WLB in Deloitte.. as it is not my first Big4, I do see normal work culture and WLB which was in my prior Big4s. If I do compare it with Infy or other ITES than yes it is horrible here. There is a big difference in working hours and actual constructive work, people from consulting can relate it. One small thing if new joiners or D folks are so unhappy why they want be with the organisation..
