I am considering a move to Oregon and have a considerable amount of questions for teachers in Oregon mostly about pay as I'm fearful I can't afford to buy a decent house in Portland on a teacher's salary. If it's not too rude to ask, how much to do you make after taxes? Could a teacher with a single income afford to live in a decent part of the city and maybe have a yard to speak of? Are there teaching jobs available? What kinds of schools and districts are there and is the pay comparable from district to district?
