I've been seriously thinking about changing careers for some time and getting into high school teaching, but I don't know if I can afford it. I tought EFL in the Peace Corps so I do have enough experience to know I enjoy teaching. However, after reading some of the posts on this site, I'm feeling quite discouraged. There is no way I can afford to work part time subbing for year. Is it really that hard to find a teaching job in Colorado? What is the average wait time and how do people support themselves until they're hired? I can't imagine you can support yourself subsituting. Also what are the most competitive areas for high school teachers. I'm considering going for certification in either social studies, Foreign Language (Spanish) or ESL. I'm guessing it's fiercely competitive for foreign language teachers, but would like to confirm. Any advice would be appreciated!
