I live in Lakeland, but I teach at Haines City HS, which is at the intersection of US 92 and US 27. I really like the entire area here. We moved here from Indiana four years ago, and we've really enjoyed being here. Also, the schools here in Polk County are actually pretty good. Haines City High School is both a regular high school and an International Baccalaureate School. I teach in both schools, and several of my IB students have been accepted to prestigious or even Ivy League Universities. Lakeland is a great place to live too. It is halfway between WDW and Tampa. We live close to I-4, so it only takes us 30-35 minutes to get to and from the parks. However, we are far enough away from the parks that the extra tourists and traffic don't bother us during peak times. My parents live in Davenport, and they really like it as well. Let me know if you have any questions.
