Re: Such a deal-What $ saving ideas have you found

Oh, there are lots of perks. Almost free tuition, excellent insurance benefits, the cultural advantages of living near a university town, a boss who values family and pretty much lets us do our own thing here, the opportunity to work part time when I have kids, the flexibility to finish my D.Ed., an 8-5 workday with no additional evening or weekend committment ever, mandatory time off over the Christmas holidays, 5 additional weeks of vacation a year right from the start. And most of all, I enjoy working with college students and helping them figure out their goals and the best way to attain them. I also get a chance to teach for additional pay. I didn't persue higher education to get ahead in the work world. I did it because I enjoy it, although I know that sounds cliche. Also, my husband has a great job(s) which also allows flexiblity and we're able to maintain a pretty decent lifestyle.

Many of my advisees may make more money than me when they leave here, but I can wake up every day knowing that I'm dog gone happy with life.
