That sounds like a superb idea, and one I definitely want to look into, but my major concern with that choice is a severe lack of finances. I'm working a dead-end, $8.00 an hour job that doesn't allow me to save much money. I have the opportnunity to teach in other states, since I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education, so I can look into that as an opportunity. With the economy, though, I'm not so sure. Any suggestions?
