    5700 pink slipped in the City of Detroit another 500 in metro Detroit, and more coming once the school year is out

    again...I ask myself why I spent a ton on my degree, yet I can't use the darn thing

    really starting to get depressed....I actually started crying the other day, wondering what I was going to do

    the prospects of not having a house, a car that is on it's last legs and an impending student loan bill that I will have to start paying on in November

    Can you move? I hear that Alaska always has openings.
    Some rural areas need teachers sometimes.
    Some districts need many subs and that is a way
    to get a foot in the door. Good luck. Long ago an admin.
    told me there is ALWAYS a need for good teachers.

    I COMPLETELY understand!!!!!! Things are terrible here, too (Southern CA) - they've had layoffs in my area for 4 years, and more this year!

    Like the PP said - can you move?? That's what I will probably end up doing. I've already decided to apply ALL over my state, and I'm still toying with the idea of other states. Someone on here asked - would you rather live in your area and NOT teach, or move somewhere else and be able to teach? For me, the second option wins every time.
