Hello I am new here and I have a question for NC teachers. I have taught for many years in New England (specifically Mass and RI). I was a classroom teacher but since earning my M.Ed in Literacy I am now employed as a reading specialist. My husband and I are considering a move to NC because we want a slower pace of life and we are tired of the rudeness/snobbery here (Mass is a very materialistic and fast-paced state). We are considering NC, but I have read that it is a horrible state for teachers due to extremely low wages and morale issues. Is this true? Can any of you share your experiences and give me some feedback? I can tell you that where I am now it is all about common core standards and teaching to a test. I'm sure it is like that everywhere to some extent. I have considered private schools, but they don't pay. What is it like to live and teach in NC? Any thoughts you can provide would be greatly appreciated! THanks!!

old vet You will find the same frustrations here that you have there - CC, teaching to the test, senseless meetings and so-called " staff development", etc... You will only be paid less for the headaches than you are used to now.
