A HS classmate teaches in Rennsselaer. According to see through ny . net, he made $81,357 in 2008 and is currently earning $100,739 in 2014. That's an increase of $19,382.

In comparison, my youngest's teacher (same subject, about the same number of years on) made $59,986 in 2008 while currently earning $116,302 in 2014 for an increase of $59,316 for the same period of time.

I don't know what step level each is at, or what additional courses they've taken to increase there salary, but we're looking at two teachers who are teaching at the middle school level. What's wrong with this picture?

Some of that money could be part of a lawsuit where a payment was made, or a retro payment from a union contract that was settled after years of no money

I used to review these salaries, it's not unusual to see an additional $20k in salary come from summer school $ or coaching sports.

While that is very possible elsewhere, it was not the case in this district.

Checked the board meeting minutes where coaching, etc., is approved. Name did not appear.

You are looking at " base salary " scales.

Just based on the fact it is a HS classmate of yours teaching at the lower rate, I expect that person initially started at a much lower rate than you child's teacher did years later. There is also the fact that your friend might have different post bachelors requirements ( I'm retired 12 years and my husband longer -- he didn't even NEED a Masters! Just 30 grad hours; I needed a Masters and I wound up with 2 Masters ... The difference in salary was minimal in a very low paying district -- he got paid at Bachelors+30 hours pay and I got paid the Masters+60 hours pay/ there was no 2 Masters pay, nor was there pay beyond 60 hours, except for a doctorate)

Those pays are between $28-43K above what our district pays at top step now.


Interesting to see.
