  • Sure! But I cannot imagine ANY (legal) job that would pay me what I earn between the hours of 8AM-3PM, Monday through Friday, with summers off, along with holidays, weekends and evenings off, AND the flexibility of 10 sick days (accumulated annually) plus 3 personal days per year, and full medical benefits! Teaching is a GREAT job when your children are young and in full-day school!

    Maybe when they are old enough and responsible enough to take care of themselves after school, I will consider something else, but for now, it's the best supplemental income for our family (My husband earns the primary income)! :o)

  • I try to, with all the scams it's hard to trust 'new' companies. I tend to stick with what I already know works, but I'm always open to look at new ideas.

  • Regardless of how I like the job I am always keeping an eye out for something better. I've not yet found a job that I felt like I could work there forever and be happy. It's always smart to keep an open eye to something better, because you always want to better yourself financially.

  • I have my own business that is going to be up and running this year but paying off by 2012 and we will be moving to Japan. I am also in college so everything is open to me.

  • I always look to see what else is out there and also make sure that I have varied skills just in case we ever move and there are no jobs in my field.
