Word of advice. Live like you didn’t get that salary bump, then throw all the extra into your savings.

I dunno. When I was a junior in New York, that first pay bump got me a lot closer to being a normal human. After 80, you can probably just live the same and save though.

The teacher shortage is a national crisis (one that was foretold decades ago).
