Now teaching Latin and Greek at the
Hotchkiss School in Connecticut, Davis
and his wife, a nurse, live on campus in
school-provided housing, which, he says,
saves them more than $1,000 a month.
Still, teaching and nursing generally are
not the highest-paid professions, and the
couple track their other expenses using a
spreadsheet. They also plan for expenses
three to five years in advance. And, he
says, “we don’t have a really spendthrift
lifestyle. I don’t really buy electronics,
we’ve had the same TV for 10 years, and I
have my grandmother’s old stereo. We
don’t rack up a lot of costs like that.”
Care with his finances allows Davis to
do work he loves. “In terms of lifestyle, it’s
very rich,” he said. “We’re surrounded by
young, vigorous people. My colleagues are
very intelligent and energetic, eager to
show the world to young teenagers. That’s
a very stimulating environment. My car is
10 years old, but I’m much more willing
to make that kind of sacrifice than do
something I don’t really like.”
