“Will Teach for Food”

I once saw this sign and thought it was hilarious.  It’s a little less amusing now that my five-year “hiatus” from my teaching career has not yielded any changes in the world via my employed contributions to nonprofit causes or payless writing of poetry.  So I took a break, and had a blast reading my first book in public for a year, and there couldn’t be a worse time to look for a job doing what I studied and trained to do for 20 years.  Hmmm.  “Will Write for Food.”  No?
