I'm new to this forum and have been perusing some of the recent and past posts. I've got to say that I'm seeing a whole lot of griping going on! I should think that in this horrid economy, with so many teacher lay-offs and so few jobs out there in any field, a teacher who hjas a secure position should be on their knees thanking the Lord!! You have a good salary, good benefits, summers off, snow days, delayed openings due to iinclement weather, life insurance, dental insurance and peace of mind knowing that you'll have a paycheck every other Friday to put food on the table and pay your rent. It really annoys me to hear all you teachers whining about how much you hate your jobs. Quit....and work, REALLY WORK at Walmart for $7.00 per hour. Do that for a bout one week and you'll beg for your "horrible" taching job back! Oh, by the way, I'm a retired teacher.

MJ Laid off twice since 2009 and I am certified in 5 subjects, teaching since 2004. Always had excellent reviews, but was not a continiuing contract teacher so I got bumped over and over. It's been a year now and I've been trying very hard to find another job, but with no luck.

Should I complain?

I have no health benefits, I had to f...See More

Retired Teacher Looking for Work Good morning MJ, I sympathize with you because I, too, am seeking a job but after retirement. It's frustrating to say the least! I'm 62 (which by today's standards is not old) and cannot even find a job in Walmart. I was thinking about taking a few more courses to be certified in another subject but if I'm not going to be considered for a job, why ...See More
