    There are alot of decent paying jobs out in the country schools.

I know for a fact that Nuclear plants are great for this. Illinois has some of the most strict license requirements. make sure it will transfer to wherever you go. Our weather and such is pretty decent, i will not say good, but not too bad. Also, Missouri has a very low average teaching salary. I hope this helps a little.

    Yes, I can tell that you have done your homework.
    Thank you for the advice.

    No prob, just spewing back everything I learned this semester.

    I think I would like the South.
    Somebody I know played semi-pro hockey down their and he and his wife seemed to enjoy it.


    What about places like AZ and NM?
    Does anyone live around there?
    Being a poker fanatic, I'm also wondering about places in Nevada besides Vegas.
    How about Utah, Eastern Utah? So are you looking for a rural or suburban setting? Town or Country?
    I've been to Salt Lake, and it was OK.
    No offense to any Mormons out there, but the influence they have on everything there kind of bugged me.
    I'm not too picky about town or country, but if I live in a place with a low population, I at least want to me within 30 miles of a fairly large town (like at least 50,000).
    Arizona, definetly. I don't know the area but find the biggest town and then find a smaller town 30 miles away and you should be set. I could wake up every morning to the views out there, plus you can head up to Utah and find some great skiing.
    The one and only live NFL game that I saw was in AZ.
    I was in middle school and it was the last game of the season, a meaningless game between the Cards and Bucs.
    It was the worst game I ever saw.
    The stadium was at half capacity and the final score was 10-3.
    Steve Deberg was the backup at TB that year.
    That's about all I can remember.

    AZ is also a definite prospect though.
    I enjoyed my time there (besides the game
    :P).

    Yeah, we have that here in AK too.
    I should get a picture of the Packer fans up here.
    Not one is under 50.
    The Bears fans are also meatheads, as I gather they are down there too.

    Re: Help! Where should I move???

    Minnesota is very good to their teachers.
    My Mom started as a teacher in Nebraska (Western part of the state), then obtained her specialist degree and moved to Minnesota for an elementary principle job.
    She retired a few years later.
    There are many awesome situations in the education system in Minnesota...Connecticut is to teachers too.
    I think you'd like Chatanooga, but I'm not quite sure I'd describe it with the word "progressive."
    Austin would be a great place to live.
    Atlanta is ok, but I'm not a big fan...prefer Charlotte, NC.
    Charlotte is a great city...best in the South IMO.


    You should look into Colorado, it is not as cold as most people think...also, alot of days of sunshine, active people, mucho to do.
    Yes, it snows, but, unless you are in the mountains...it doesn't last long (check out Fort Collins, great city nobody knows about).


    Good luck bro!

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    As a matter of fact, I do know

    lol,
    I don't think hippies are poisonous.
    My best friend is there, so that is a check mark for OR.
    I'll likely visit there soon.
    Sorry.
    Oh, you don't think the hippies are poisonous, eh? No, you're right; they're more like a disease than a poison. But at any rate I was talking about the multitude of poison oak, black widows, and timber rattlers.

    And by all means come, visit, partake in the many lovely things Oregon has to offer. Then go 'way!
    ;D

    edit: In all seriousness, I have a few friends that are teachers here and the pay is pretty weak. It actually saddens me immensely that my state's schools are in the situation they are. But there is a constant lack of state funding (perhaps you heard about the "shortest school year in the nation" a few years back that was lampooned in Doonesbury? Pathetic).
