2021.11.29 01:50 kingc95 I left the school system prior to Fall, but i wanted to explain why and see if other people were experiencing the same issues
Tldr: I left teaching Mechatronics and Java Programming to work at a start-up, hire 4 of my former students and work on robotics and cool stuff. I still coach for the district and would love to teach again when I'm older.
Long version: I began teaching CTE in 2017 after leaving a traveling field technician job for a small robotics company. I had one class part time and i was 22 years old, no degree but i figured i had a future career now. My first year i had 10 students, i had 0 guidance and Im just glad no one got injured in the shop. I had no business being left alone with no mentor to show me the ropes. I was consistently late with paperwork, and set myself up for alot of grief.
I didnt have the faintest notion of gap analysis, marzano(then it was something else), or anything else that makes up about 60% of the job. I had experience teaching summer camps, coaching and the being a curriculum writer for STEM. But no formal education so i was very lost and confused. But after my first year i learned alot and decided to stick with it.
Year 2: my class grew a little and i started to find a niche. I had some cool technology to recruit students, i had fun lessons that most students could get behind and I was finally doing lesson planning more than 2 days ahead. I was told that things were good and hopefully id get another class and work my way to full-time.
That year came and went, some promised upgrades to my classroom never happened, but i shrugged it off and kept going along.
Year 3: still only one class, maxed out, but ive now been working part time for 3 years leaving a job that paid me about double. No change, no raise, no anything. Same classroom setup i inherited, some kits and bobs but nothing concrete and still just being told itll happen
Same old, same old
Year 4: I get a second class, its going okay and im feeling good. We're getting some flexibility in my lab, IT finally gave me the software needed to do programming, i only asked for it 3 years ago! Then covid....
Year 5: still two classes, but we're in person, with weird rules, i have two classes thats secretly 4 classes cuz some kids are online and some arent. 4 gradebooks, double the students, same pay. Its a rough year, online students dont have any punishment for skipping or not turning in work, i bend over backwards trying to get them to pass, no dice. I sat alone in so many zoom calls that i started to call myself from a second account to check that the links worked. I was just sick and tired of the online mess. It was poorly managed and i think many people felt that same burnout.
The end of the year approaches and i asked about picking up a 3rd class to make me full time. Theres a huge demand for CAD and or other CAD instructor is also construction tech (also popular) and he's fulltime already. They reject the idea since he doesnt want to give up that class... Which wasnt what i asked for but whatever. So i ask about creating a second class for one of my other classes to offer. They said oh well the other programming teacher is gonna have an AP class that those students are gonna go to. He's already fulltime too. So he'll have 4 classes in the space of 3 as will the other teacher. Im still part time with 2 classes and willing to pick up a third. No dice there either. I ask about my class sizes for the next year. 6 and 10. I have seats for 24 and i know students who requested my class but were turned down.
I felt like i was being edged out and not being looked at seriously compared to other teachers, partly due to my age, partly due to my lack of a formal education (still in progress) and partly due to the budget put upon the admin of my building. So i started to look elsewhere.
I found my old boss from my former career and he had started a new company with 2 other people. I took the jump and honestly dont know what would have happened to me if i stayed. I feel like alot of CTE teachers could make alot more money in the field, but they choose to teach because they want to pass on their skill set to the next generation. Thats what i wanted to do, its why i still coach the robotics team despite quitting teaching. But the district is either unwilling, or unable to make it happen for a variety of reasons. So that talent leaves and either the program gets a new teacher whos just like i used to be, or the program dies off. Why is the retention so bad for CTE?
Has anyone else gone through something like this?

Sir James Godwin always fancied Bella. He asked for her in the bar during the early season. And now that she has a high post, he wouldn't want her to go back to whatever position she was in before. Do we see Belinda face off with buxom Bella next season? Maybe you guys have figured it out all along. Maybe I'm pulling an 'Alice' here.

Usually transfer students into the UCs are from community colleges but I was wondering if anyone knew anyone that transferred into UCLA or other UCs that was from a private uni outside of california?

I always hate tossing the knobs of wax left over after the candles have burnt down -- it seems like a waste. What do you all do to reuse the perfectly good beeswax that remains?

2021.11.29 01:50 Sticksy617 Thoughts on The French Dispatch
I honestly think that this is Wes Anderson‘s greatest film yet. My entire family loves his films and I’ve always been a big fan, but I always feel like some of his films have a lot more style over substance (moonrise kingdom, the Grand Budapest). This is a big reason why I hate Quentin Tarantino, but I prefer the style of Wes Anderson‘s movies, so the style over substance thing has never bothered me too much. However, the only movie that really emotionally struck a chord with me was the life aquatic and now, the French dispatch. I feel like instead of having style over substance, this film has much more style and substance than any other Wes Anderson films I’ve ever seen. I felt like we really got a chance to connect with a lot of the characters and they weren’t just being deadpan to accentuate the quirky comedy. The art direction still has Wes Anderson‘s style all over it but it feels more mature and communicates the story very well. Overall I really hope this movie doesn’t get shit on like life aquatic did because it is now probably one of my favorite movies and I want to show it to everyone.

2021.11.29 01:50 OkHomework7248 Chronic UTIs from ileostomy - Help
Hi everyone - my father suffers from chronic UTIs from and has an ileal conduit urostomy after having a cystectomy (bladder removed). He has been in and out of the hospital every 6-8 weeks for the last two years including Urosepsis since the surgery - and he is mainly battling gram negative ESBls that are part of the gut bacteria but which we believe are colonizing either in the bag or in the osteomy and up the urinary tract.
Doctors are advising we go to the hospital when any symptoms and he has been on and off heavy antibiotics. It’s been rough.
Has anyone else dealt with this? Any tips on how to maintain hygiene or any innovative ways to keep the bag clean or stop the bacteria from colonizing?
Any alternative treatment ideas that have worked?
We are out of options and frustrated. Open to ideas, doctor recommendations, products, supplements, treatments - anything from those in this community. Thank you.
