The forum is great and answers many questions but has my mind spinning with more. Does anyone know if there is a need for substitute teachers in the area. I will be retiring in the next few years from a PA school and wouldn't mind subbing a day or two a week. Also is there a need at the colleges for student teacher supervisors?I could do either, just wondering if I should get TN added on my certification.

What about bugs and poisonous snakes? We can sit out in the evening and not be bothered by bugs. To do so there will we need a screened porch? It is pretty cold much of the year in this part of PA so we don't have cochroaches, are they trouble some?

On and near the lakes, what about snakes?

Default Rutherford County teaching info

Where specifically are you looking to move to?

I'm sure MTSU could use some additional student teacher supervisors. If I remember correctly, most are either faculty or retired principals/asst. principals.

In the Rutherford County area the Holland Group handles substitute teaching. I haven't subbed any, but I know of other students who do if often, so I'm sure it's not hard to get in a few days a week if you're interested.

I can't speak about anyplace but where I live. Mosquitos love me and yet, I have not had a single mosquito bite since I moved here in mid-May and I sat outside for a 2 hour concert one night in July. I have seen some interesting spider webs down by the lake but not the spider. So far it's just gnats and ants and some of those humming bugs in the trees.

Default What noise?

Do they ever make a racket out here! Funny thing, though, it's just another thing we grow accustomed to and don't notice much. A couple of weeks ago we mentioned the noise to one of our neighbors and asked what was responsible, and she looked away slightly with a quizzical look apparently trying to listen. A moment later her eyes widened and she said, "Oh, THAT! It's cicadas."

They do make good alarms, though. A couple of days ago while working in my office, I noticed a sudden silence. I went out to the deck and looked toward our woods and saw two deer walking around. Pretty cool, huh?
