I understand what you're saying about being locked into the state retirement system; I didn't take a job in another state because my wife is a teacher here and needed a few more years to retire. Anyway, there is a surplus of teachers in the Pensacola area, so unless you teach special ed., this probably wouldn't be a good choice. It's not a bad place to live, however, but it does have its downside: pay is generally poor here, the city of Pensacola is dirty and rundown, there's a very strong "good ol' boy network, local politics is somewhat in the hands of influential people, and housing prices have risen drmatically in recent years.
