    I will say that because I am a retired/rehired teacher I am capped at 20,000/year less than my experience would warrant.

    I am a National Board Certified Award Winning teacher, who teaches 3 sections of AP US Government, and also in our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) program:

    STEM policy - as a social studies teacher I know the policy process very well

    Environmental Media - again, have to know media for Social Studies, and the environment is one scientific area in which I have a fair amount of knowledge

    Research/Data Analysis -  reached ABD in education, including a healthy dose of statistics through multiple regression.  Am comfortable with matters of research design, documentation, and statistical issue.

    BTW, with my skill set, which includes quite a few politically related skills as well as a thorough knowledge of project management and systems analysis, I could easily in either the government, politics or industry make substantially more than I ever did as a teacher.
