    77-Intervention and Support

    We are in the first full week of November. Wow, it has been a busy... Two months, hasn't it? How are you doing? Have you done any self-check-ins with yourself, obviously, do you find yourself getting home and then immediately either showering or just getting into your pajamas or sweats and finding that weighted blanket to then binge TV, or maybe you're running around and taking your own kids to their... After school activities, no matter what... Whatever you are doing, I hope you're taking care of yourself. That's a really hard thing to do.

    75-Financial Literacy Student Take Over

    Welcome back to the Connect FCS Ed podcast. Today's episode, or little PD is gonna be a student take over with my financial literacy class. This session is live during my class period. So there is background noise, but I have several of my students that I lovingly call the peanut gallery. I've been overhearing them talk about being a teacher and what being a teacher entails because they saw that I had my Excel spreadsheet up on the screen and transferring names over, and they were commenting, "Oh, I can never be a teacher because of the grading scale" and all of that so I thought this would be a wonderful teaching opportunity as well as the learning opportunity to have this fun conversation with this amazing bunch of students, so... Welcome fifth period!
