One happy teacher at Jackson High School has already hired a real estate agent and started her search for the home she thought she would never be able to afford.
Jared Kink, president of the Everett Education Association, told The Beacon that the new contract approved by teachers has given the Jackson educator the confidence she could finally afford to move out of her apartment and buy a home in Mill Creek.
“We wanted to change your lives,” Kink told his members. He said teachers should be able to live in the district where they teach and still take their families on a vacation.
