Does it make sense to boomerang back to big 4 just to brand my resume for exit ops in moving to industry in the future?

I have an old relationship with a c-level client leader that’s having some issues with someone at my company doing work for him. I’m not part of that work, and I want to help both sides. It’s fixable but puts me in an awkward position, e.g. needing to call out one senior person in my company that maybe isn’t a good fit there when I don’t really have any details other than what the client/friend tells me. Any guidance if you have been here? Thanks.

Pencil dipped in paint and shoved in my new electric sharpener. There are acts of destruction daily in my classroom. Most of my classes are 25 kids in a small room. When my attention is taken for a second, someone does something like this. Gluing things to counters. Hiding paintbrushes instead of cleaning them. 15 years, I've tried everything to cultivate a respectful classroom culture, and they just don't care. I'm so tired. So, so tired. I don't know how much longer I can do this.
