That's a really personal decision, and it's hard to advise you on that given that I don't really know you or the details about your life. Based on what you said in your post, it sounds like your $1200-$1400 per month salary will be before you purchase supplies for your class. Can you afford that? I think it will really come down to being a financial decision for you. While I admire your dream to work in the school where you attended, you need to figure out if you can afford it...and when you consider the affordability of working there, you need to figure in the cost of purchasing teaching materials as well as consider retirement and healthcare benefits. In my state, retirement contributions (and therefore payments) are a given for public school teachers, but private teachers aren't included. Healthcare is available for public but not necessarily private. Just something to weigh in as you decide.

Good luck! How fortunate you are to have two jobs at your door!
