Thank you so much BAH1. I’ll talke a look today and follow up if there’s a role I’m interested in. Much appreciated

It happened to me OP a couple of years ago and I decided to leave. Looking back I’m glad I stuck to my principles, but it was a bad move financially and career wise.

Thanks for your perspective

My husband and I are considering a move from New York to Virginia in the next 3 years.

I’m currently licensed in New York and California and will have been practicing for 10 years by the time we move. Thanks!

Should respect be EARNED or GIVEN? 🤔 Chime in.

I come from the European culture of education where teachers are highly respected - very much like in the Japanese society where teachers get the utmost respect, as high as if not even higher than doctors / surgeons.

Students stand up when the teacher enters the classroom, say “hello” when seen in the hallway, etc. Teachers are (or at least are expected to be) GIVEN the respect by students. Seems in the US respect has to be EARNED.

Anyone who has started up a side hustle whilst working in consulting - is it generally a good idea to let your employer know or will they make your life difficult/try to push you out if they know?

He doesn’t want to invest one more cent in this house.
