That is 100% the case. We need more money for more teachers and counselors! Schools’ budgets have been trending in the wrong direction since the 80s.

I’ve practiced litigation in DC for about 5+ years at a larger plaintiffs’ firm, and am considering a switch to a defense firm. Is there any insight to how many billable hours this would require, and how much time that would actually be? For reference, the firm has a 1900 billable hour requirement and the partner said I would have “no problem” fulfilling that based on the work they have.

I’m wanting to revise/revamp my resume. However, I feel like there isn’t really anything that I could change that would not only help get me through ATS, but will also stand out to hiring managers and recruiters when trying to apply for roles. I’m just wondering if there is anyone who would actually take a look at my resume and make edits to it while also walking me through what needs to be changed?

In a time of uncertainty, stress, anxiety, and sadness, I want to reflect on things that make you happy.
Tell me something you enjoy about your school. This could be a people, a space, an ideal, something that makes you happy when you think about your school and your job.

Here’s mine: All summer a small group of teachers and administrations have been repainting the whole building and adding murals to spruce up the school. When we reopen we want the space to feel exciting and welcoming.
