Whislt I might agree with an expand upon Auld Yin's view on the evil that is Unions in teaching (& many other professions for that matter), you couldn't pay me enough money in the world to be a teacher. I suspect, if those that snipe, had to do it themselves, they'd rapidly find themselves coming to a similar point of view.

Fully agree hence my comment of walk a mile...

I think anybody heading into a form of management job should be required to have spent at least one year teaching in the classroom.

I do love my job and my school and that potentially is a huge personal wrench for me - not being involved with children and education.

People are different. Some have an itch that has to be scratched, no matter what.

Some people will think that a secure job that they can do with ease is the recipe for a perfect life.

Others will view working the same job, that may have ceased to challenge them, year after year until retirement as profoundly depressing.

I completely agree. We have a good lifestyle over here, hubby has a secure job with a really good wage. We still want to come over to Canada. We want a different lifestyle. It's likely we might have to take a cut in salary.

I don't want to get to 50, be depressed and think "what if we had got into Canada"... got to follow your dream I think....

What leaves me nonplussed is the idea of a different lifestyle, how is it going to be different?
