Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that I am teaching down here in the great state of North Carolina! I am teaching 6th grade Language Arts. It is great, I love it. It is a dream come true!!!! I am working in the Windsor County which is a very low income county. It is amazing that these little kids want a gigantic Mid Westerner teaching them! I have never had so many kids ask me if I could be their teacher!

I wanted all of you to know that down here in Bertie County that they pay an EXTRA $1500 a month for Math and Science teachers PLUS each teacher gets a 3% supplement each year! That is an EXTRA $16,350 dollars a year totaling $46,350 for a beginning teacher! That is just simply amazing! If you know any people who just graduated college of people that have been out of college awhile, like myself, have them give me a call! There are LOADS of teaching jobs available down here! There is also a $1000 signing bonus and if you sign a three year contract they will pay off a great portion of your student loans! In my county alone we are short three teachers and school starts in less than two weeks!

One last thing in closing, I really truly thank all of you for being great educators and huge influences in my life! I never thought I would end up in North Carolina, but when you are passionate about you do you will go anywhere! I hope I can be half the educator that you all are! Thank you again for being great teachers! I wish you all the greatest this coming school year!

Please feel free to have any interested persons call me!
