I'm an artist and teacher in Colorado. A late-life career change brought me to teaching last year, and I just completed my first year as a High School English teacher. It was great. Now it's over, and my contract has been non-renewed.

Something most people don't know: First-year teachers are often "fired" after their first year, making room for more experienced teachers within the district to take their position. They'll probably be re-hired later, once student registration is completed, just as the new school year starts. This is the real reason so many first-year teachers never come back.

"You're not good enough in May, but if we're desperate we may take you back in the fall." This disheartening message makes webmasters out of good teachers.

WealthyAffiliate, I'm back. Watch me soar!
KleeClay's Goals 3
Money Goals
I spent the past year teaching High School English. I made $32,000 as a first-year teacher. I worked typical 11 hour days, and I was at the beck and call of every politician who thinks he knows how to test children to prove that teachers are doing their jobs. I don't want to think about the amount of money and time I spent becoming educated and qualified to teach in the first place. So...I find myself feeling incredibly motivated to make this succeed. I would be HAPPY to make more than I did teaching, on my own terms. I'll set that goal at $40,000 per year. I would be ECSTATIC if I could make more than my ex-husband does, who says nobody makes money online and it's all a scam-- so that goal is $100,000. How much time? Like I said... I'm motivated. If I gave 11 hour days to teaching, I am happy to put in that much time for my own success on my website. Long term? I never get tired of teaching and writing, which is what this is all about. I may not always maintain an 11 hour/day schedule, but to get going, I will.
