SOS I’m a first year teacher. I’m at a VERY challenging school district & a different culture than I’ve ever been around before. I cant get through a full day’s lesson! I spend more time disciplining!

Considering an expert role in healthcare in mid Atlantic region at McKinsey. Any thoughts about culture, wlb, tc, etc? Have read through a bunch of older threads. Opinion seems mixed. Negatives mentioned include more intense work hours than integrative track, second class citizen, slower career progression, lower pay than integrative, harder to get staffed on engagements, poor integration into teams, and subpar exit opportunities. Also read this is changing. Would appreciate recent thoughts. 🙏

At a neighborhood gathering, a large group of people were bemoaning the ills of the world and someone piped up with how much they hate how schools indoctrinate their children. I ALMOST asked which of my classes she had visited and where in the lesson I had indoctrinated her children. I don’t actually teach her children and she hasn’t been in class since high school but... Grrrrrrr. Does anyone have a good strategy for speaking up about this? Or some nice, calming mental affirmations? 😉

I teach in a high school that doesn’t tell us what we are teaching until a couple of weeks before school starts ( not talking about schedule, I mean the actual classes). We start in three weeks. I would spend an hour or two each day beginning August 1st getting things organized, revising, and adding to my lessons. My teacher friends from other districts seem surprised that we are not informed yet. My previous school told us in May. How many of you don’t know what classes you are teaching yet?

Im a third year associate and I’m frequently asked to give presentations (on new case law, legislation, ect.) during a weekly meeting for my section. There’s a first year associate and a law clerk in my section who are never asked to present. Should I push back on this? Would it look bad if I delegate some of the work to the others? I spend a lot of non billable time prepping for these presentations...it seems unfair that I’m the only one who has to do them.
