An Oklahoma teacher is taking her skills to Texas.
She takes the three-hour drive from Norman to Frisco, Texas – more than 340 miles round trip – every week.
She says she took the job because pay there is $20,000 more.
“I'm where I need to be because it's meeting my needs, but I do have hope for a brighter future of Oklahoma and the children… it's not fair to them what's happening.”
She made the switch shortly after the Oklahoma teacher walkout in April because her two sons are in college and the pay outweighs the commute.
