I am hanging it up, thank God. I had it! I received my teacher's license 8 years ago; I had to take a class in reporting abuse. Next, it was a test for this, a test for that and I had a M.Ed Degree.
Next, they required technology training which I already had in Grad. School at UVA. WITH ME SO FAR?
I am a teacher, social worker, CPS, I.T. specialist, but that's not all.
I and with every other tecaher in Virginia are NOW required to take CPR/AED every 2 years. What the hell. Now I am an EMS worker.
No wonder students never learn when a teacher does everything but teach. I QUIT AS OF JUNE, 2013.

When I was a teacher, we simply had a license in 1967. Today, it is crazy in Virginia. CPR and AED(HEART ATTACKS?)on the licenses not to mention every 2 years to renew? Sounds like a money scam like Princeton ETS. Isn't there school nurses? PE teachers who already have that?

Yes those were the good old days, 1960s. When I taught at NNHS, I don't think the PE Teachers even had C.P.R. I feel for you. It's not worth the time nor money. Soon, your license will have you signed up as a 'floor technician,' cleaning the room after school.(12 credits for certification, of course @ 3.38 per credit)
Try home tutoring. I make 32 an hour tutoring high school AP Math classes(subjects: Trig., AP Calc., Geometry...)It's all done at the library or students home with parent(s) present. Good luck--

And all that for $30k a year...I can't believe anybody would want to teach...I heard teachers also spend their own money for resources the county/parents are too cheap to provide...just remember folks, these kids today will run our country, fight for it (or not), and pick your retirement home/social security benefits.

Principals and asst. principals along with about 30 other different teachings,ie sp ed, stutters,autism-brats,and a host of ghetto blacks who need a reading specialist, cost millions. Cut them all out and the SOL scores would not chane 1 point. Union thugs stealing home property taxes on trips........

I taught at Lee Hall Elementary, Newport News, until 2005-2006 school year. I was teaching in the 'Computer Lab.' The principal was a nutcase. She had me reporting to the main office all the time to squeal on others. After school, I would stand in the rain and cold making sure kids got on the bus. She was lazy,imo.
Then I transferred to Bethel Manor E.S., 07 in Yorktown. It was worse. The school was poor and their computer lab had a teacher who was into every other teacher's buisness. She was,imo, lesbian but worse, she couldn't teach basic math on the computer program.
Sad people in this World!

I admire you for quitting. It's a cheap paying job that starts at roughly 38k in your area. You can tutor, as one post mentioned, and make more. Take cash only and you won't have taxes. Just keep you license for your state 'renewed'; people who have kids want a licensed teacher to tutor.

I meet a lot of teachers where I volunteer. This Summer I have told several to get out of the profession and use the Summer to find meaningful employment. Not worth it.
