fun,

Can you say where you will be teaching more specifically? If you are in Northeastern part of the state (like Elizabeth City area), there is a lot of diversity. I can't tell you want will be the same or different. That area however is very poor. (It is actually a Teach for America site.) But if you are teaching on the Outerbanks, you won't be in a poor area. Right now, there are a lot of people upset with our temporary pay cuts and furlough time. When you will be, education may not be valuable. I will say, I teach in a very rural area in the pedimont, and I can tell that education is not valued in a lot of the children's households that I teach. Schools are schools. The staff you work with may be great, and they may not be. That's the way it would be anywhere.
