Yes many schools are experiencing shortage of instructors so you can have as many student and work as many hours as you want. Really a good time to be CFIing.

Of course cost of living is sky high here too... But if you are willing to live with the roommate and work like a dog, you can earn and save goo chunk of change.
Boy, have times changed. I was making $15 an hour back in 2002 at a large pilot mill school in DAB. Full bennies though for what that was worth.
