Hi! I'm looking to transition out of teaching. Anyone else trying to leave and get into a new field or knoe anyone who was successful? (I've searched for groups on here just for transitioning teachers but I cant find any) What companies look for and hire former teachers (not just edtech or curriculum companies)? What are some transferable skills teachers have? A lot of the time, we don't realize what we do every day can be considered valuable in other companies!
Excel, I love you. But sometimes, I hate you.
For those of you who left big law for an in-house role, what was the transition like out of your law firm? Standard two week notice or more immediate? I'm just trying to gauge timelines so if I get the call in hoping for on an in-house position, I can move quickly, but not leave anyone in a jam

Thank y’all for starting this bowl! Newly expecting mama here 🤰🏾I’ll be 11 weeks tomorrow! My husband and I are praying that I give birth to healthy 🤴🏾 or 👸🏾. I look forward to learning from this group!
Am I tripping? Everyone loves calling my daughter (2 months) "lil chocolate drop" or "look at all that chocolate". I love my daughter's complexion, not only because it's mine, but because it's beautiful. However, I can't help but feeling like ppl "other" or make it weird by avoiding saying dark. Calling her dark is acceptable and appreciated. I know "chocolate" comes from a place of affection, but I just can't embrace it 💯.
