    SraH...something else I forgot to say!

    One more thing....

    If you are going to quit teaching, you need to be open to the possibility that you may have to start at an entry level job in order to work your way up.

    What I mean by this is this: I applied to a call center working as a customer service agent. This sucked b/c I was on the phone listening to people complain. But four months after working there, one of the trainers was leaving to become a stay-at-home mom. I applied for the job and got it. Granted, I was lucky that there was an opening so soon, but the company knew me, knew my track-record as a good employee and with my degree and teaching background, I was a shoe-in. You might have to take a job making far less than you did teaching AT LEAST IN THE BEGINNING.....as long as you are with a company/organization that values promotion for within and has advancement potential, you will be fine!
