If you were about to begin your career in teaching in a couple years but you had the option to borrow state loans but have to teach in state for them to be forgiven, but your real desire was to relocate out of state, would you stay in state and get the experience and loan forgiveness, or plan on relocating right away? The main issue is more that I don't really wanna teach where I live right now, but I could save potentially 10 thousand dollars in loans if I teach here for 2 years. This seems like an easy choice to most people, but if I get a couple years experience, the problem is the area I want to move to increases teacher pay by about 2-3 thousand dollars per year compared to 300 dollars per year where I live now. If I went to apply at schools out of state, will they look at it as in I have 2 years experience so I cost 6000 dollars more than a graduate out of college or that I am more experienced than a graduate right out of college so I'm worth more? It's a rather tough decision because if I find out that I could have gotten a job out of state when I finished college but 2 years later find out I can't I would be pretty devastated because I'd be stuck here at home getting a raise of only like 300 per year for another couple years until more jobs open up. So would you avoid $10000 in loan debt which would equal like $115 per month over 10 years and risk being stuck with one job you only wanted to be temporary, or would you transfer out and take a job in a better place to live, better pay raises and benefits, but as a consequence have to pay off $10000 more?
