Hi. New to the forum. I am in my 7 th year teaching making 60k. I moved 90 miles from home for this job. Im in a great district with great pay for PA. My problem: My wife and I want to move back home. We have 3 little ones missing out on family back home. Both of our family's and extended families live there. We have no life here basically otherw than some friends. Back home I would take a 20k plus pay cut if I even get a teaching job which we all know is not the easiest thing in the world. I will be making 80k plus before im 35yrs old at this current job and that's with about 12 yrs experience. I will NEVER see 76 k back home. Not even close Money is t everything though. I am more concerned with having luck finding a job in the terrible educational times of Pa with all the budget cuts and teacher cuts. I am thinking about commuting 90 miles one way(hr and 45 min). No traffic. All rural/highway. Some mountains to worry about In winter. With my schedule I would leave at 5-5:30am and be home by 4:45pm. And of course with teaching perks of only working 187 days a year. How crazy do you think I am? I am at the point of quitting teaching all together to move home which is NOT what I want to do. Or commute.. Input from other teachers who commute would be appreciated! Again, this is all for my family to live near aunts, uncles, cousins, gparents. Thank you for any input!
