Who uses Class Dojo or Remind? I would like to set up my computer classes on one of these for parent communication. Which one would be the best?

I hear a lot of elementary teachers use Dojo and HS teachers primarily use Remind.

I go with this. Our principal at our high school stopped using remind though because it cost him to send school wide.

I have used Class Dojo for 8 years and love it.

I use Remind. I have not had problems.

I have used both, but really like Bloomz best so far.

I've used Remind in the past. I liked it. I have never used Dojo but friends who use it love it!

REMIND. Absolutely love it.

I use Bloomz, but I'm wondering about Class Tag.

I prefer Dojo for communication. I’ve tried both and went back to Dojo and am sticking with it, it just seems to work better for me.

I have used Remind for a long time and really like it! It is worth the hassle of setting in with students and parents 🙌

I love Dojo! I am the ambassador for Dojo at our school. I have used it for 6 years now. I use it as my main communication with parents and students all year for both in building and online teaching. Would be lost without it.

I've worked in startups for 10+ yrs and I feel 100% burnt out, especially WFH + raising a baby.

I just got an offer at a large corporation that's not super exciting (not FAMGA 🤣) but the pace will be slower and my role/responsibility is v clear.

I'm about to sign the offer letter, but I can't shake off the feeling that I'd be "bored" in this new environment. I made the decision to "cruise" for a couple of years to focus on family, but I feel like I'm taking a back step in my career. 😭

Need advice. Am in the middle of parental leave right now and my spouse and I are on the brink of divorce. Have only this 1 kid. Spouse doesn’t work yet, but can with earning potential around $50k. I make around $450k. No way I’d keep this job if divorce happens. I’d eventually transition in house so I can take care of my kid when I have him, but that won’t be immediate. How will custody work in that case? I want joint, but how do I take care of him alone with this job in the meantime?

My mother is visiting me and staying with me for a few weeks. I am having a really hard time fighting my abandonment issues and being nice to her/around her. For years, I was taken for granted and was the emotional punching bag. Since my father passed she wants to spend more time with me and I can't understand why. She has aged and I can see that and it is taking everything within me to fight the abandonment issues that I am feeling. I know she means well but when she says that she wants to

All, you were right. My father in law’s rolex is a fake. I still got it fixed for him. It is a bad fake indeed. There is discoloring, made of steel, the insides don’t have rolex engraved etc etc.

However the sentimental value prevailed and all the insights you gave me is a huge lesson for me in checking fakes vs originals. So thank you all!

Does anyone do any non-christmas decorating in their classroom? Have you had any complaints about it? I'm thinking about getting a Menorah and some Kwanza items this year, to spice it up and because I think the kids would dig learning about them. Only worry is some overzealous parent will accuse me of trying to make Christmas "woke." I just think it would be fun! Thoughts? I don't teach in a super conservative town but we have more than a few loud mouths who lean that way.

Assalamualaikum everyone I am in a family predicament and would like to hear your thoughts:

My father is emotionally abusive to my mother. Always has been since I was a child. My mother vets to me about how he treats her. I see it all the time. With the smallest of things he will yell at her, belittle her and demean her often for no reason. My mother has severe anxiety and depression because of it. Ever since I've been an adult I've been telling him to stop this treatment...(cont in comments)

Hello All,

Need your help in figuring out a situation. I moved in with my BF during the pandemic since we were in WFH. I moved from a relatively big city downtown lifestyle to a small remote suburb because he owned a house here and didn't want to move. Since EY made permanent WFH almost all of my colleagues and friends from work moved out of the city.

Now my BF goes into the office in the city (1hr drive) regularly while i am WFH. After work he goes out for heavy drinking and late night. Cont

SO beyond frustrated with my work environment I think it may be time to leave for good. I returned from maternity leave after 4 years of working at my very old-school, boys club, nepotism-friendly company. The number of remarks I got on my appearance, my pregnancy and etc was a little annoying before I left, but since I've come back it's been nothing but comments on how they can't believe I'm leaving my husband home with the baby etc. Sorry for the long post just needed to vent!!

I recently returned to work after having my second child. Firm told they will make me income partner this year. I got the least supportive spouse ever. He’s verbally abusive and constantly putting me down. He never helped with kids. I don’t want to get a divorce now as I have young kids but we fight constantly - and after every fight, I feel so little. My work is so busy and I’m running everything in the family because I WHF (his words - you want me to quit my job)… how to survive?
