That’s a challenging situation to be in. My first wasn’t the easiest either. Reach out if you want to chat. I have a few tips that I share with all my fellow teachers.

I took over a classroom from another teacher as well and one parent does this. Thankfully, I have another Pre-K teacher who has been teaching a bit longer then me and it really helps to have a colleague validate your actions and to vent with

Honestly, share how you feel directly to the people involved from your heart. They may not be aware that you are getting hurt in the process. I m sorry that you are constantly compared!

Your thoughts.
I know even techies or mba people have worked and moved from these org and they have their reasons to take a big role in big4 or smaller role in tech just because of the pay and wlb. For eg PM profile and onsite opportunities associated with tech co.

Is anyone struggling to find a job after layoffs? I’ve been unemployed for three months now and it has taken a toll on me. I submitted close to 300 applications to become a PM. Unfortunately, entry-level PM roles are rare and most companies want 5+ YOE at this time and so I was rejected for about half of them. Been interviewing every week the past few months and got very close to 10 companies but all fell through due to hiring freezes. Any tips on what I should do? YOE: 1.5

Every busy season right about now, I dream of what life will be like once I leave public. The issue is, I have no idea what real exit ops are out there for me. I work in PCS, and when talking about exit ops, everyone says the same thing - family office work. Am I really that restricted? People generally don’t have a lot of positive things to say about PCS and I’ve ignored it, but I’m really starting to wonder if I should switch groups, or if it’s too late. I’d appreciate any input anyone has.
