My opinion, and this may not be popular, if you need to survive- get another teaching job. You have experience and you've shown that you can at least get the job before. Then once you've secured the job, start looking for a new career.

I'm looking into maybe subbing, but I haven't registered for sub training with all of the potential districts. I'm really not that good at that job, either, though.

Not that I wouldn't be happy to have one, but a full-time teaching position would take away any time I had to search for a job I can actually tolerate. I resigned from a good teaching job at a middle school because I just couldn't do the job.

That's really not a bad idea. I think I will look into it if I can ever find a part-time job so that I can afford more school or if vocational rehabilitation can figure out a way to fund additional training for me.

I'm open to doing that, but how exactly do I apply? I think the last time I went to the website, it said they weren't currently hiring in my area. Thanks for the reminder, though. I guess I'll check again and see if things have changed.
