So I recently accepted a new position--in a district I wasn't even really considering due to it being "far away" (my MiL teaches for it and she lives in the Middle of Nowhere two hours away, etc). MiL as well as an old colleague teach there and like the district just fine. I honestly interviewed for the sake of interview practice. Now, this school happens to be the closest school to me in that district... and it's not a bad commute at all. When I told people where I was teaching, they would looked shocked "because that's far away" before realizing "wait a hot second, Backroads, you would have a shorter commute than a majority of the schools in the two technically closer districts plus you're going the opposite direction of rush hour traffic? We hate you!" Yeah, the commute really worked out. How much does commute matter to you?
