transfer New Jersey teacher to South Carolina?
I am considering a move to South Carolina from New Jersey. We have 2 children, ages 5 and 7. My husband is an elementary Phys. Ed. teacher in Princeton, and likes it very much, and is well paid, has tenure, and our children get to attend Princeton schools for $1750 each per year, this price will probably inch up, how much is unclear. We currently live in a nice section of Trenton (Really! to those of you who know a little, but not everything about Trenton!) I am a Personal Trainer and work at a nearby country club and in private homes. Life is pretty good, but I am really seduced by the slower pace of living and friendliness of the south and wonder if it would be a better life for my husband and I and our children. We have no close friends here, and it is hard to be too active in the Princeton community, as we live 25 minutes away, and I do not care for the Princeton attitude, nor for the Trenton one! Has anyone transferred from teaching in NJ to SC? My husband has about 14 years in experience and the pension. Any suggestions/ opinions are welcome! I am interested in the Beaufort area.
