    Graduated as one in '07. Secondary Education; History and English. I'm now in business as a result of the economy.

    While I do miss it, I'm happy to not have to look for a teaching job anymore. It hasn't gotten any better since I received my degree.

    Ex-teacher here. About 5 years in the business, and got tired of the bullcrap. Good luck to everyone putting up with it.

    I've been licensed to teach for six years now, but I'm not willing to take a giant pay cut to enter the field.

    Until they institute a system of merit pay, I'm not much interested in doing it.

    I taught for a year. Not my cup of tea, but it gave me infinitely more respect for those that do teach year after year
