Wow, looking for a job is a job all by itself! I knew I would take a drastic cut in income when I retired. I have to pay half of it for insurance! So I'm looking for a job, any job, I can do. For days on end I do nothing but sit a the computer most of the time. I take breaks and do other stuff, such as this blog. Indiana treats teachers like s@#t then they don't pay us crap when we retire. And insurance? It's great coverage but boy am I paying out the you-know-what. I HAD to retire, for mental and physical reasons. Even if I waited longer I'd still find myself at this place. Remember the song that said, "I need a lover that won't drive me crazy"? Well that is what I'm looking for in a job. I need a job that won't drive me crazy. Because teaching did, more and more every year. I am willing to teach in a different setting, like maybe for adults trying to get their GED or diploma so I'm applying for that stuff, and anything else I can do. And I do not want to tutor! Any ideas?

Just be thankful you are not a teacher in Nevada. I know it sucks all over for those in the education field, but we are last place as far as education goes here in Nevada, I just saw that on the news a few weeks ago. Sad, sad sad. I know you pay out of pocket for most classroom expenses, including books, paper and writing materials, and I hate it when parents bitch about having to buy supplies that teachers kindly request at the beginning of the year. I volunteer as much as I can with my kids classroom, and this year will be even more fun as I will be spreading myself thin between one p.m kinder class and 2 1st grade classes. But I wouldn't trade it in for anything, I love it. I also use to work as an aide in the district out here, so I know the political red tape that you have to go through to get funding for activities and classroom supplies and the way some of the admin treats teachers in general. It's no picnic. This is why I chose NOT to go into teaching as it's way too political for my taste and I'd get fired my first day on the job probably LOLLL

What about opening up a school in your home? Can you do that out there? I was born and raised a Hoosier, but don't know much about the laws regarding that particular topic. I know you said you don't want to tutor, but maybe you can focus on a particular grade(entering freshmen, or 8th graders preparing for HS in AP classes or SAT classes for Juniors/Seniors??) and work in a classroom setting from home? A group of kids that just need extra help, but are all on the same level academically? Kind of like a regular classroom, only you can go to work in slippers or flip flops if you wanted to LOLLL Wish I could help you out. Times are tough these days and when you have physical and/or mental issues to deal with it can be even more exhausting than the actual job itself.

good luck with your job search. I hope something comes your way soon. BB

Thanks but opening a school in my apartment is not practical, plus there is too much red tape. And I don't think I'd want to anyway. Too much like tutoring in my home. God I hate all the stupid questions they ask you on these applications, all just sneaky ways to see if you are dependable or a thief.
