Slight enhancement to new "Schools" feature

Slight enhancement to new "Schools" feature

Short, concise description of the idea
Some of us have taught or been staff members at schools, as well as having been students. A way to indicate this would be a nice feature.

Full description of the idea
Simplest, but useful: Just a way to show "Staff member" or "Teacher" after the dates. For those who have been a student and later a teacher at the same school, the ability to add the school more than once with different parameters would be good.

Better: The ability to add a few words, so you could identify a department or job title.

An ordered list of benefits
  • This allows students to find their former teachers, and teachers to find their former students. Likewise the coaches, librarians, cooks, or even janitors, who often can be great favorites with the students.
  • The same space could be used by students to show their field or study or fraternity membership or whatever.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Additional coding for someone at LJ.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Just add another text field to appear after the dates of attendance or association. It can be limited in length if necessary, but at least 24 characters or so.
