As schools/districts are sharing their plans for the new coming school year, teachers are heavily considering the potential consequences of returning to the classroom.  Teachers are one of the most giving people around, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is forcing many of us, especially those who do not like any kind of distant learning, or are immunocompromised, to reevaluate our jobs and careers.   On this episode, we dive in on what strategies you can do to help you find that new job or career and transition from teaching.   Tune in and let us know what you think or share what we're missing in our super secret Facebook group!
