> Thanks.I have a friend who left California to come home and take
care of her aging Mom. She took a substantial pay cut and
has had a very difficult time adjusting to the lack of
motivation and pace of the teaching expectations here. She
taught Spanish kids in California. I moved here from Ohio
and have not found a job in two years as an attorney. Be
prepared. Its very clickish here and if you have an opinion
about anything...keep it to yourself or you will be frowned
upon as "not fitting in". Its very slow here...keep with
the pace and you will do fine.
