1 in 5 teachers holds a second job to make ends meet


FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Nicholas Peterson stood in the parking lot of Loveland High School with a crowd of marching band students. It was still early, but the pavement already radiated heat. He told students they'd be practicing parade-style today, so it was important to keep their feet moving in time.

He used to be the band director at Loveland High, but these days music is just his side gig. Now he works primarily a counselor at Fossil Ridge High School in southeast Fort Collins. Throughout the year he freelances as a marching band instructor to pay the bills. He also judges various out-of-state shows and helps design drills.
