Hi! Can someone recommend a source for learning how do simple, fun music lessons on Zoom? I teach first grade and use music for my transitions. I would also like to play songs for them with my guitar, but am concerned it won’t sound good on zoom (the guitar, not my voice, which is bad, we established that long ago)

I'm done getting paid 1/3 of the class teacher pay and expected to teach the lessons. The other Paras in the class seem to think this is normal. I certainly don't get the same respect as the teacher. Am I alone here?
It's so wonderful to not have to lesson plan on a Sunday afternoon. Who's with me? From now on, I want Sundays to be ALL mine. Is it possible?
I’m a 3rd grade SDC teacher on an emergency credential — had never stepped foot in a classroom before last Tuesday. Can anyone offer advice/resources for lesson plan development? Help!

Watching the game, lesson planning, or both? Can you do both??? It's too distracting for me...
Fun tip of the day - you can use dynamic array functions (sort, filter, unique…) to easily create dynamic drop downs for data validation or cascading dependent choices (i.e. cell B2’s drop down updates based on choice made in A2). The trick is to add a hash after the cell containing the dynamic array in data validation source and it picks up the whole array. Good lesson here: https://www.excel-university.com/dependent-drop-downs-with-filter/
Watching the Indian Matchmaking on Netflix. Every other minute a guy or his parents are asking for "fair skin." 🤦
PS: I am not Indian and really don't want to offend anyone, but I think this is not a positive messaging for young girls.
Is there any American History Teachers out there using this text book? I'm retiring and the end of this year, and want to pass on Lessons and very cool Crossword Puzzles I've made for every section of this book! I realize mine is the Florida edition. But pretty sure any state edition's text will be the same. I'm not sure the easiest way to get them to you. I'll figure that out if anyone is interested!
Audiobook recommendations? Currently listening to The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and I'm enjoying it, but I'd also be open to listening to novels aside from self help books.
Father daughter dance recommendations?! My dad and I love to dance and love 90s country, Billy Joel, Vince gill, Luther vandross, and any oldies. Is “just the way you are” too over used?
Has anyone filed a police report with LA county that have video evidence and the faces of the criminals? Any lessons learned? I recently got my bike stolen and I want to make sure the footage I have gets seen by an officer.

I had cleared my final round of interview at pwc more than 10 days ago and have sent all the documents to HR. Compensation discussion yet to be done. But I haven't been contacted by HR since then, I called him to discuss the status of my application, he told he would call me, I am confused if hiring team at PWC usually take this long to connect with the candidate on compensation discussion or should I think otherwise.

I’m so happy to say that after about 5 years of being here, I’m finally done with the exam!!! In a world full of internet trolls, it was so refreshing to be on this thread while we all cheered for each other and pushed each other to climb over our failures and discouragements. Thank you for all who have posted helpful comments, asked poignant questions and left their encouragement! If I can pass, you will pass! Best of luck everyone!

What is wrong with people that try to push introverts to present because they think “it’s good for us and we will get over it this way”?!? As an introvert I know that I need to know my stuff continue.
I'm looking for insights into the Motherboard and Single Board Computer market. We have spoken with representatives from some of the leading motherboard and SBC manufacturers who are reporting rapid growth in this area (16% or more) but everything I'm seeing is showing more average growth of about 4% to 7%. Anyone out there in the industry have insights?
So, I started working full-time at a retail store for clothing and accessories and after a brief dispute with my supervisor (my bike broke down which made me come in 20 minutes late to y shift) they told me that it seems like working is not my priority, so to make it easier on me I would only get 20 hours a week. Things are tight as it is, I can't start working half-time. Please someone share some advice or any job opportunities you've seen out there

How do I get out of pharma?! I feel like the only people reading my resumes are pharma recruiters
This summer I will be teaching the two courses required to gain the extension certificate to be a New York State certified Work-based Learning Coordinator. Is there a requirement for additional training to become a WBLC in your location? Is it part of an existing CTE teacher’s responsibility or something else? Do you need a WBLC for your program approval?

How do you set up your classroom? What can you tell me about how often you use instruments? What do you do to make them accessible? Thanks so much.
What are some VERY SIMPLE yet engaging activities (that don’t involve paper and pencil) that you use on the first days of general music? I teach 4th and 5th grade.
Out of curiosity, how do you all feel about the “haha, recorder is a joke” jab from other teachers? While I enjoy a good laugh, it kind of bothers me coming from non-music teachers.
Hey! I’m planning to take an Orff Level 1 course this summer. Any tips, tricks, or advice as I prepare? Also, what other trainings would you recommend for elementary general music teachers? Thanks in advance!
Did anyone else’s back-to-school plan not include music at all? I’ve been told I’m still supposed to teach music this year, but they haven’t announced any plans for it yet. You’d think the classes that contain the most students per day would be a higher concern 🙃
And now you know the rest of the story
If anyone needs awesome, fun music activities, search Vincent Bates on youtube. He's a music education professor and has his music education students play music games so we can learn, too!
Just heard that my district will have classroom and live-recording learning. I’m thankful because I now can feed my family, my newborn and a recent-sponsored wife! I’m scared because I’m almost 50 and I’m afraid I might catch the virus and die leaving behind my 1 month baby and a wife who is not legal in the state yet! The USCIS or Trump’s dept. thinks she’s not good enough to be in the US!! We applied for green card and SS card since August 2019!
I have a hand full of k-5 students who have gone the first half of the school year without music because of remote learning. Our district is moving to 100% traditional teaching after the MLK holiday. Any suggestions for reintroducing concepts to the group of students that’ll be joining us f2f for music the first time this school year?
How are you preparing your music classroom for long term shut down?
I put small stuff away. Covered all shelves, floor drums, Orff instruments with sheets to deter dust accumulation.
