I am just having an all out problem and I don't know who to turn to. I want to be a 1st grade teacher and I am in the process of going through all of my general education requirements, but I am having second thoughts because of the money that teachers make, or atleast where I live there is a lack of money. Many of the schools don't even have enough money for books!!! The other profession that has come up is Nursing, the only problem is I am not sure I can handle the blood and guts part of it, but they make good money!!! I am afraid I won't be able to make a good living, heck my husband of 2 years only works in a factory so I am scared!!! Any advice or opionions? I know I should not be so focused on the money, but I have been also reading through many posts and have seen that some people have had difficulty finding jobs; how difficult is it really, would it be harder to find a job as a teacher or as a nurse in your opionions. Please let me know!!! Thanks.
