Leadership, soft, and even technical skills are often not well represented on a 1-pager

Introduction

I recently applied for a fellowship. In preparation, I completed a questionnaire that was thorough and thought-provoking. In answering the questions, I honestly evaluated my technical, leadership, business, and communication acumen. This was an excellent exercise in preparation for interviewing, and I highly suggest it to all who value reflective practices. I am also posting it as an article because I realized how poorly my resume represents my skills and the value I add to my workplace. …

As beginning Python developers and data scientists, we are introduced to the bevy of libraries that support our work like Numpy, SciPy, Pandas, and SciKit-Learn. These libraries and their packages allow us to fast-track our learning and workflow in parallel. They remove barriers to entry into the technology industry and improve productivity for the beginner and experienced engineer.

However, these out-of-the-box solutions can be challenging to adapt and apply to individual business problems, especially. …

In the continued pursuit to answer the question “Why are teachers changing schools frequently or leaving the classroom altogether?”, the Tennessee Educator Survey data is examined for evidence of one of the environmental microsystems defined in the previous statistical analysis.

The findings of the statistical analysis show that teachers across the state of Tennessee are closely divided in their feelings about their work environment. Those who feel positively barely outnumber those who feel negatively on any given metric.

While sitting in an International Finance class, a student hears the professor state, “When you have an issue you believe may be systemic, analyze it on a local level before you take a look at the national or global level.” Essentially the professor provides students with a valuable lesson in sampling population statistics to gain information about a whole population.

School districts across the nation report a shortage of teachers at every level, especially in maths and sciences. The question is, why?

Let us find out what educators in one state are saying about their working environment. This may help…
