Helen, that's great! Congratulations. Keep going. I left teaching many years ago for technology. It took me a while to make the decision because I did enjoy teaching, helping others and working with youth, but I'm glad I did because I realized I do really love tech and software engineering. I do miss teaching but as you mentioned academia is not only about teaching. It comes with so many other convergent issues.
You're so right. Theres too much bad taking over. Looking forward to a change!
