Absolutely. I was at step 11 at my last district and have to fight for step three where I am now. plus. Needed to reset The Tenure status. The only reason I would love tenure is because it will save me over 10K o On healthcare.

What? I’ve never heard of that before. Are the pay scales drastically different or something? If I’m on year 15 here, I’m on year 15 in another district. I moved districts before and they never took me off my current step. There’s no way I’d take a 12,000 pay cut. They’ll just have hire some first year teacher who will work for that. That’s crazy.

I guess I understand going from public to private or state to state—that’s two different systems, but district to district in the same state—that’s the same thing and isn’t something I have ever encountered. I knew that could happen if you switched states.

I've seen folks around here ask for referrals to companies. I'm looking for a referral to KPMG's Data & Analytics practice at an equivalent level to EY manager (currently S3 here on track for promotion this upcoming year). How does that process usually work on this app? I'm open to other consulting firms as well but already have referrals for most of my targets. I specialize in AI & ML and my differentiator is being able to effectively translate between executives and data scientists.
