Teaching at the College/University and Graduate School level is always a very rewarding career field -- especially at those Institutions that still offer Tenure to experienced Staff Members.

I teach several courses at the college level: Mathematics, Physics, and Investments, UWASAP.org.

The OP wasn't talking about teaching at the College/University level. The OP was talking about teaching in the K-12 level. In several states the starting salaries for teachers at the K-12 level are pretty dismal. Made even more so by teachers not being able to do their continuing education credits during the summer. There's a tight balancing act for teachers who are trying to complete the regular school year in time to start summer university classes.

If you don't have qualified teachers at the K-12 level, the university positions will dry up, as there will be fewer students being accepted into the colleges.

We just put in a hiring freeze for administration at our university. For now, the faculty hiring is still being allowed, but if you need to replace administrators or support staff, you have to get special permission and be able to prove that the job is necessary.
