I use to enjoy pulling together lessons using a variety of resources, and not using textbooks or ready made curriculum. I just used the standards. These days, I’m finding that my online students find a set curriculum easier to navigate. I’m finding it easier to keep organized online. Anyone else having a similar experience?

I am pretty sure I fell victim to a scam. I am really embarrassed that I paid money to a company thinking it was a legit deal and am now finding out it was not. I should have known better but pushed aside my instincts and my training because I was stressed about money and thought this would help. Stupid lesson to learn.
Many teachers in my district are being told things like If you dont turn in lesson plans, if your lesson plans aren right, if you do your data chart incorrectly ..... you will be terminated. This is not legal. Question is if you get terminated in one district can you go to another district in the middle of the year?
I was told to build a slide laying out a project impact, deliverables and lessons learned by EoD. What content was I given? The word ABS. I asked for clarification and got back, "Just guess, lol."

More and more learning these softer lessons: perception is reality; office politics is real; biggest customer is not client but your manager, etc. As previous engineer, all overwhelming...
Lesson for all: guy gave two-weeks notice the other day was told to leave today because he was speaking shit about the agency. Enjoy two weeks without a paycheck to start your new gig!
Agencies seem to have overcome Level 5 restrictions for this year’s Christmas campaigns. Best year in a while. Impressive, given the circumstances.

Hi all, my current title is Motion Graphics Designer. I just finished my probation (6 months which is very uncommon). I proactively asked my manager for a review because I negotiated to have "title review" included in my contract when I got hired as they didn't want to offer Senior Motion Designer. The department head (my manager's boss) is happy with the work I delivered. How should I prepare for this title review and pay raise negotiation? Currently getting paid 88k. I am expecting 95-100k
Additional Posts in Elementary 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!
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.
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 🙃
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.
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!
And now you know the rest of the story
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!
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.
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?
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)
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.
