I suggest you jump ship quick. The teaching ship is taking on water fast and there is a glut of unemployed teachers. Here in Tampa Bay entry level teachers make $11 an hour. This is no joke as they start as substitute teachers. Can you live on $55 a day?
Maybe you could if this were 1970 but not in 2008.
The Florida legislature is considering a bill to gut the concept of tenure entirely. Jeb Bush has an organization that advises the legislature on the privatization of education.
Re-train yourself in something other than being a teacher.
Don’t wait…do it now.
