Confessions of a Bad Teacher: Why I Left my Dream Job
Mary Flegler

After earning a PhD and having taught at the college-level for more than a decade, I walked away from it last year. Your description of a system of judgment and personal misery mirrors my own.

At first, I had a serious identity crisis and was panicked by the thought of the loss of steady income. But after a couple of months off and a lot of reflection and planning, I’m happy to start exploring all the opportunities I was missing.

Thanks for sharing your story. I’m sure you’ll be ok, too.
