Get on the teacher gravy train

John Ahlquist

I have a suggestion for Ginger Green. Go back to school and get a teaching certificate. You too can get in on the gravy train. If news reports are to be believed, the teacher shortage will increase in the next 20 years.

This will raise the pay of teachers even more. Finally, you will be able to find many school districts that pay their teachers more than $60,000 per year.

Many of these districts have a much lower cost of living than Summit County. In Rockford, Ill. you could buy a five bedroom/five bathroom house for $129,400 (MLS # 80880). Have all the fun of teaching school and get rich too – what a concept.
