Advice for living with/loving a first year high school teacher.
January 10, 2014 8:56 AM Subscribe
My girlfriend, domestic partner and hopefully future spouse is a first year English teacher at a public high school in NYC. This is a tough job which takes a huge emotional and physical toll on her. She looks to me for support and sometimes I have a hard time knowing how to provide it to the point of feeling powerless to help her. Has anybody here been on either side of this? Any advice?

We've been together for five years. I have never worked in education and hold a stable, relatively stress free job.
