I am ideally looking for responses from people who live in areas where there aren't many teaching jobs. I have recently secured a full time permanent primary job which has taken me 5 years to get due to the competition and lack of jobs where I live. I don't want to give up my job However due to my husbands job and a desire to live close to my family we are relocating to a new area which means I will have to travel to keep my job. My new house is 2 hours drive from current school so travelling everyday would be very difficult. Would you: a) stay close to school during the week and travel home at weekends b) drive every day - 4 hours in total c) give up the job and look for something else I think I am pretty much going to do option a but people I have told have in general been very negative, comments like you are crazy, so bad for a marriage, etc. etc. Any reassurance?
