Getting so sick of the traffic and nonsense in the city. Born and raised, been here for 30 years and never really explored the burbs. Let king for a fresh start. What’s a good small town vibe burb around Chicago? Need to stay in the area to be close to family. Also. Would love to be a part of the metro for airport etc but I don’t really see myself using the city much.

Go north for sure. Western suburbs feel super manufactured and artificial. It’s more expensive, but worth it and travel to ohare is generally a lot less stressful. Also the metra north line is great.

Lake Bluff has an outstanding small town vibe and a beach to boot!

Forest park, oak park, park ridge, niles, morton grove, Skokie.. list goes on just depends on which burb area you trying to go north, west, south

Wilmette and Evanston

Agree with the above list and Naperville.

My school deliberately cut the number of classes that the specials teachers teach so that we could be building subs for quarantined and sick teachers (we are hybrid). So... I teach fewer classes (which is a relief because specials teachers teach way more classes than core teachers normally) but I'm pulled for most of my planning periods to babysit classes. I need my planning periods so I can redo my ENTIRE curriculum... and I just feel unappreciated, used, and nothing more than a babysitter.
