"There’s no doubt that mothers and other caregivers are important figures in our lives. They teach us, guide us, influence us, and cheer us on. Note that not all of us have mothers in the traditional sense and may turn to other family members or loved ones for advice, support, or encouragement. So, this Mother’s Day, let us celebrate not only the women who gave birth to us but also the amazing role models who have enriched our lives."
Teachers have long known that feeling safe and secure in school helps students focus their energy on learning. And the research bears that out: A 2018 study found that when teachers deliberately foster a sense of belonging by greeting each student at the door of the class, they see “significant improvements in academic engaged time and reductions in disruptive behavior.”
This post outlines ideas from teachers for ensuring that every student in the classroom feels like they belong.
Some of the activities included take less than five minutes. They’re divided up among the grades, but many can apply across all of the years from kindergarten to 12th grade.

The ability to gather and analyze different types of evidence is one of the most important competencies for anyone who conducts investigations. There are many types of evidence that help the investigator make decisions during a case, even if they aren’t direct proof of an event or claim.
The first rule is that evidence must be relevant to the investigation. If it is not directly related to the case it isn’t relevant evidence. That said, there are many types of evidence that, while not admissible in court, can be valuable to an investigator trying to reach a conclusion in a workplace investigation or other non-criminal investigation. And even some evidence that is not admissible on its own may be admissible in conjunction with other types of evidence.
