I was a full time teacher in Florida for 3 years until I was laid off. No jobs, so I left. I moved to Ohio and have been a sub for 9 years. Ohio's teaching requirements to be a full time teacher is ridiculously strict and expensive. The ony way to be a teacher here is to plop down 25k and go to Ashland University. Teaching salaries dont justify the high price tag at my age of 55. Ive tried the alternative route - waste of time and money. Now im being offered a building substitute position. Ive done that 3 times already. Argh. Im at wits end. I enjoy teaching but ready to throw in the towel. If I cant be a full time teacher whats the point? I have a bachelors degree in social science, have a Florida license that wont transfer, I am expected to get another Bchelors degree in education plus license. Any ideas? Tired of being just a sub.
