in 2022 study Of more than 4,000 teachers, 81% say their overall workload has increased. Additionally, more than half (55%) said planning is taking longer due to staff shortages and other factors. The combination of extra work and dwindling resources is creating unprecedented stress in the profession and increasing levels of burnout.
As a result, the education sector is losing employees. One of them is a woman who goes online by the nickname Millennial Ms. Frizzle. She recently resigned from her teaching position at Costco, and when I compared her two jobs, the aforementioned numbers gave me a rough idea.

The content creator known online as Millennial Ms. Frizzle realized just how bad teachers can be.
And explained why she’s so happy after leaving the education system to get a job in retail
Her TikTok went viral
@miku_10000000000000 I used to be a teacher and now work at Costco. This year is the first time that there is no winter break. I haven’t missed it at all. The pace of my work has improved so much that I no longer get sick or exhausted like I did when I was a teacher. When I was a teacher, I basically used winter break to recover and survive to move on to the next semester. #f#former teachert#teacherquittokc#costcotiktokr#Retaile#exteachertiktokc#career transitiont#teachersonbreak ♬ Original Sound – Millennial Ms. Frizzle
So she immediately followed up and compared the support she received at Costco with the support she received at school.
This video was also popular
@miku_10000000000000 I used to be a teacher and now work at Costco. I eventually found that the biggest difference between working as a teacher and working at Costco now was the way I thought about the environment. . Teachers are always suspected, rarely supported, and generally have to fight for themselves. In school, it doesn’t matter how many qualifications the teachers have or how well trained they are. Teachers are always approached in this environment of scarcity. The time I have received relevant training while on the job. I am not expected to do my training more than my time. I am approached with understanding and support. I have never done anything like that as a teacher. #t#teacher lifeWhat#former teachert#teacherquittokc#costcotiktokr#retail workersK.#KAY kiss countdown ♬ Original Sound – Millennial Ms. Frizzle
However, some still do not understand the difficulty of teaching
So millennial Ms. Frizzle also took the time to educate them

@miku_10000000000000 Never miss a “break” from teaching. I’ve been through summer break, Thanksgiving, and winter break now. When I was a teacher, I was getting sick, but as soon as the break started I got sick. It was not only a physical illness, but mental and emotional exhaustion. #CODSquadUp #former teacher #Teacher Ron Blake #teacheronbreakstuff #former teacher #teachersoftiktok #teacherquittok ♬ Cool Kids (speeded up version) – Echosmith
@miku_10000000000000 Thank you (*´꒳`*) Are teachers too sensitive or completely out of touch? Are teachers whining or seeing how badly teachers and students are treated? Are you denying the ?##education crisis##teachersoftiktok##teacherquittok##former teacher##CODSquadUp ♬ Original Sound – Millennial Ms. Frizzle
@miku_10000000000000 Maybe one day we will fully understand how messed up our education system is, but that day has not yet come. As I was literally on my way home contemplating the difference between working at Costco and being a teacher, this hit me like lightning. #costcotiktok #KAY kiss countdown #teachersoftiktok #teacher life #teacherquittok #former teacher ♬ Blue Bloods – Heinz Kiesling & Various Artists
@miku_10000000000000 I understand that my content is really confusing people’s thoughts about teachers and what schools are. . I am not concerned with making you comfortable or making you sit in the dark. Remember the housing crisis? The education bubble is about to burst ##education crisis##teachersoftiktok##teacherquittok##former teacher##CODSquadUp ♬ Hope (2 minute edit) – Max Farrar
@miku_10000000000000 Really replying to @vvvalerievvvalerie, but education is a never-ending parade of being told someone worse than you could figure it out, so you will too. It’s positivity, it’s a lack mindset, it’s just abuse. And no, there were no unions in the states where this happened. #teachersoftiktok #teacherquittok #former teacher ♬ Original Sound – Millennial Ms. Frizzle
