35 k a year as being a teacher will suck balls, my friend. With all the extra work you put in, plus all the extra cash you spend out of your own pocket to buy supplies and need equipment in order to complete a lesson because schools give teachers a whole twenty maybe twenty-five dollar budget for supplies. When you have a classroom filled with thirty plus kids, twenty bucks does not cut it. I know out of experience, as well as my wife.
As for NYC, I want to see a job list for NYC. All jobs that are advertised in NY are crappy jobs, jobs that can barely provide you a monthly metro card. Search engines like Monster, Career builder are nothing but crap, they advertise the same jobs over and over. The few jobs that are worth applying for no longer enter the salary range and when you go for an interview, the salary tend to be in the low thirties. Including some job titles listed here.

This list is useless in NYC. Teachers barely make that much, the only way a teacher can make that much is having a masters and ton's of certifications. Listen folks, the bachelor degree is useless. Thanks to all these no name school pumping out under qualified 'graduates' flooding the work market, the Bachelor degrees is as useful as a high school diploma. Maybe it's different in other states, but in NYC, Masters is the king when it comes to get a job. Go back to school and get your masters.
