I am switching gears from immigration law, to criminal law in the coming month. This is coming after years with a small firm. No general complaints on where I am at, I just feel I have peaked here in terms of what I can do and be compensated.

The new firm has a better compensation structure and room to grow.

The point of my post is, has anyone switched fields like this? I am excited but also a little nervous the change of pace will be overwhelming at first.

While most teachers are protected by teacher unions, I feel my voice hasn’t been heard at all with my concerns of going back to school next week. Our diocese has decided on full return 5 days/ week for all 42 schools despite a recent increase in COVID in our communities. Every other school that I know of in my state is either choosing remote learning to start the year or a hybrid approach, yet that was not an option for us. Are other Catholic schools I. The same boat? Stay safe!
