Here's the background: We moved to a new town 3 years ago after I got a job teaching 2nd grade. I got pregnant in Jan of that year and resigned because I was due in early Sept and have problems. We ended up losing that baby in May. For the past two years, I have been subbing and tutoring in my home district. There haven't been too many positions around here. I have applied for two here, one in a neighboring district, and 2 in another district. My hometown district has 6 positions that I'm qualified to apply for, but the town is an hour and a half away from where we are. Now, we have a house here, and love it. If I got one of these positions, then it would be hard to buy a house in the hometown because we've fallen on some hard times like the rest of the country. So I could apply for the positions and drive 5 days a week to work or I could stay with my dad Mon-Thur and then drive home on the weekends. Another thing, we don't really want to put our dd in the schools in the hometown. What would you do? Would you still apply and drive that much?
