I know enough about the grant cycles + education budgets in high school ed to want to avoid that ;) I am working on some after-school program modules for clients for that age group though. Just so many plates to spin!
(regarding an easier customer service job, I’ve definitely thought about it. I did grocery for 5 years. I’m also bartender trained/OLCC certified and there’s some barback gigs being listed. Bars are great for personal finance.) In reality, I have enough personal cushion that if I was willing to take a leap, I could get this book out without taking on another job to pay the bills.
