Libbi Waianae is awesome. Don't believe the things you read on the internet. My husband and I are both from the mainland and moved out here. I started subbing at the Waianae schools and will be working at one full time this year. The students are great, but you just have to put your foot down and let them know you can't be pushed around. The schools out ...See More

San Diego Teacher Well, I'm 46 and have been teaching since I'm 23. I make about $80K a year. Wish I could keep my pay and just move on over! ---Mahalo
