  •  I would be looking for something else, (0+ / 0-)

    high school math?  They really need good math teachers in our high schools.

    •  So they say. (0+ / 0-)

      It would be easy to believe that if not for the RIFs that take place at this time each year.  There's also the little matter of not particularly understanding kids in the 14-18 age range.

        •  Sort of funny point... (0+ / 0-)

          The Republican governor of the state created a special teaching position in the schools called "adjunct teachers."  If you have a 3.0 GPA and a bachelor's degree, you're in.  The unions can't do anything about it because while they are allowed to negotiate, state law only lets them negotiate salaries.

          So maybe this Republican turd has a blossom...

          •  Well, be careful. Adjunct teacher may be like (0+ / 0-)

            adjunct professor.  No protection from the union contract and no bennies.  Not much of a deal.  If you have any flexibility geographically, I might consider moving to a different state.

            If you don't mind my asking, what state is that?
