People need to understand that proper education and good teachers are the most important thing.

The most common sense thing to do is to have jobs lined up before moving. Good luck.
Actually, you forgot two key words (see in red, above).

they remind me of my VERY first Professor of Architecture.
Our first day of class....consisted of a slide show of his summer trip to Europe.

A quote [spellin COR ected for pronounciation" "This is a Statue of Pith A gore E us." "He was a famous Greek Musician."

Maybe he was holding the LUTE while he was developing the Pythagorean Theorum.

Bet he made his trip to Europe a tax write off, too

Reminds me of an archaelogy class I took (in that place called "University" they sometimes let bums like us in).......anyways, this guy goes on and on about some remains called australiopithicus, or something like that......anyways, then he shows the only know remains of it, actually, a plastic replica, it was just a lower jawbone (see, they keep the real one locked up somewhere), anyways, he's going on and on about his jawbone.....then, someone in the back said "I guess that's what you call the jawbone of an ass! Oh, the guy got beet red, fortunately, class was over......

that'w what you get in University----I ought to know, been to many!

But I never learned to make posters!

I hope you're not an English teacher! hahahahh I'm just kidding. I really don't understand the antimosity towards teachers. It seems that people don't understand how important they are to the future of this country.

Teachers are more important than Wall Street bankers, I can tell you that!

Well I will be finding out first hand how bad it is as we are finally coming back to Vegas for my wifes interveiws...I may look around for work too, but hers as a teachers is more important right away..Teachers get a bad rap for getting paid all summer while doing nothing, but most teachers have have extra of thier pay taken taken out to cover the summer months. Most states give you an option to take more during the school year or space it out for the entire year. Also, my wife never had a summer off when she was teaching because she was getting ready for the new year...WATCH out Vegas, we're back baby!!
