Re: Florida Teaching Jobs

    I'm in Hillsborough County. The pay is low, workload is tough &
    it's all about the test. That being said, it's a job. I moved
    here from out of state(where I had been teaching as well). It was
    a bit of a culture shock, but I'm in my 3rd year & adjusting
    well. Always lots of openings here each year, as we are the 8th
    largest district in the country. Good luck!
