Ok, I'll admit this career change hasn't gone as well as hoped.

From your August post explaining how you turned down a better-paying job. Travsmom quoted it above and I posted the link. You certainly implied that it was a district. In any case, you had a better-paying job. You chose this one anyway.

So you didn't know you wouldn't be getting yearly raises when you took this job, but you did know there were no raises beyond 2% at the 1st (other) job(s)?

I don't understand why anyone would ever stay in a low paying job they didn't like than go to (or look for) a higher paying job that they like either the same or more.


I missed a lot of info from the beginning, but do you have another job lined up, or can you live off your husband's salary for now while you wait and look for another position?


I would not quit until I had another position/contract somewhere else lined up, but you can still work as you're checking the classifieds every month.
