That's how San Franciscans look at Santa Fe: ""only" $475/month? Sign me up!"

How Long Can We Keep This Up?

I've had to move from San Francisco, which was the first school district to EVER let me have an Algebra and Geometry and even French class as my schedule (as a public school high school Math teacher) with my choice of Prep period even after they'd seen me, to the less-expensive Santa Fe, NM - and in spite of what other New Mexicans complain about all the time I don't see Santa Fe on this list ANYWHERE. With almost the same salary as SFUSD and less than half the rent amounts for things that are actually right up IN the city of Santa Fe (unlike what you'd get for $475/month in San Francisco which is -- what, again? Nothing! HALF of a room for rent in someone's house, is more like it!) it's like getting a massive RAISE. And with Santa Fe ranking second nationwide in "gay friendliness" that works for me. Oh well, it has to. I couldn't afford to live and be a public school Math teacher in the one city I knew it was safe to be female, gay and nonwhite all at the same time.
