A decade ago, I moved to another state and took the first teaching job I was offered; it was at a private school. I found the freedom invigorating and the academic success addicting. However...the pay has never quite reached $30k, and my family is growing. So I have decided to try public school again where all the money is. (Bet you don't hear that often.) My question is this: 10 years ago, I was ostracized because I was a private school teacher in a public school world, but in the last few years I have not noticed much of a problem. Do you think going back to public will be an issue for other teachers? Will my private school experience bother the staff/administration much?
