This makes me so sad. Teachers work so hard and then to have to get another job....sad.

It’s really sad. Teachers shouldn’t have to work multiple jobs to make ends meet.

No small wonder young people don't chose education as their career!

We have friends who moved from pricey San Diego to Denver and were shocked at how expensive homes and rents are there. Costs went up dramatically after pot was legalized. She bought a Kuman franchise.

Teaching is a tough way to pay for a home in a pricey area, however, marketing and nonprofit positions pay way less. I spoke to a marketing exec. over winter break, and they start their recent graduates at $32,000. The pay for starting teachers the is $42,000. I know friends who work in nonprofit positions, even at the executive level, who make mid-$40s and don't have the benefit package available to them.

One can make way more than an educator, but they have to have the right good ole boy system to make that happen. Sadly, I don't see many colleagues rubbing such elbows.

I wouldn't be a teacher if I had to work 2 jobs. Teaching is already a 24/7 job. I'd rather work 60 hrs a week at the grocery store.
