Teachers: Worried about forced spending cuts?
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
We consider ourselves incredibly blessed because we have other options/earning potential that some other teachers may not have. We own two businesses locally; one a pet shop [Off The Ark] and the other an educational branch involving the animals and our own talents. Both are doing very well, especially under the current and previous economic conditions. If needed, both will be a huge addition to lost income. My concern is my colleagues. Most are not so lucky. most have given a ton of energy and time to this profession. Most will be OK. Most will adapt. But what about the others. "what is next" for them?
