Cost of living affecting teachers, first responders and other middle-class renters

By Kareem Neal | Scottsdale Independent

I know what it is like for teachers who work hard for their students and schools but struggle to afford to live in the same communities they love.

I have been a special education teacher at Maryvale High School in Phoenix for 23 years. And after all this time, I was just finally able to buy my first place.

Even working a second job in addition to teaching I have found it tough to find and afford quality housing and apartments to rent.

That is a mounting problem for teachers, first responders, health care workers and other middle-class residents across the Valley.
