I miss only working 10 months as a teacher....I am on a 12 month contract now. (For the past 7 years) The money is enough to pay my expenses and have a little leftover but if you figure it out on an hourly basis, it is pretty depressing!
In 8 years, I will have paid 30 years into the Virginia state retirement system and hope to
Retire and find part time work that will allow me to continue to ride and own horses!..and have more time to do it!
I'm a brand new sailor in the US Navy going through A school to become a Machinist's Mate. I have plans of getting a Master's degree in Criminal Justice and hopefully working for the DoD one day. We'll see, though.
Let's see, I have a Biomedical Science degree and I've done dolphin training, forensic analyst, chemical lab work and now I am a QA/QC Officer for an environmental lab. It's a small lab and the bosses are the greatest to work for, they take care of their workers and try to make it fun, too.

I am a Naturalist - I give nature/interpretive programs to school groups, scouts and campgrounds in the summer. Worked for a private nature center, MI State Parks and Metro Parks prior to starting my own business contracting out programs. I'm now what you would deem a "traveling field trip". Studied Biology and Environmental Science in college, ran out of money before obtaining my degree, but due to 1000's of hrs of personal nature study was able to still become employed in my field :)
