    I can’t afford to be a teacher anymore. I’m sick of trying to come up with ways to make more income. This is affecting me emotionally, mentally, and physically.

    I hope your financial situation has resolved; it’s sad knowing that this is the reason why so many educators are leaving their chosen profession.

    Things will happen in our world for this part of our career to improve. I’m sure we could make a foundation that’s dedicated to raising our incomes, and somehow make the society around us conform to it. We could do a walk across your (or any state’s) education department. When in doubt, we could probably even send a letter to our current nation’s president.

    When I was growing up, I had a teacher (now I am one) who told me that if you are upset or stressed about a circumstance to “take a step back, breathe, and eat cake.”

    I may not know you, but I think you’ll still be able to be an educator more than you may recognize.

    I am leaving too and that is one of the major reasons. It has negatively affected many parts of my life as well.

    One of the main reasons I am trying to leave, too. Sad when the profession that teaches education is the ticket to all you want to accomplish in life doesn’t pay its people enough to make a sustainable living.
