What I really need is an estimate of what will be taken out of my monthly salary.
I am not sure with taxes, retirement funds,ect how much of the actual amount I will be able to count on.

Would you teachers estimate you actually get 75% of the amount ??
more ??less??

I am working on a budget if I start working for the schools, and since I haven't
worked in a while (stay at home mom) I am not even sure about taxes
that are taken out.

I will be married with 1 dependent.

I know what my salary would be so its just the paycheck I am unsure of..

Depends on where you are willing accept a position. Guilford County has a gazillion positions (not sure why?) as does Cumberland (hmmmm...) and I see Durham just listed quite a few positions as well.

Wake / Orange and surrounding counties may be tougher to land a position.

Cumberland only has 4 regular classroom elementary positions, and the middle school positions are mostly in special ed, and just a few "unusual" high school positions (drafting, Health Occupations, & Family/Consumer Science).

After the 10th day of school is when to really be looking for a job--once they get the 10th-day numbers in, and they start seeing where they have to add classes is where the additional jobs will show up.

I should have prefaced the post with "as a SpEd teacher, I see a few openings in XXXX"

I tend to see the listings froma SpEd POV and forget there are many general ed teachers looking as well. Given the current conditions, any position is hard to get.

I have received emails from Guilford, Fayetteville and Charleston SC several times a week reminding me there are positions available I qualify for.

My DW came back from meetings yesterday and the group was told the next 2-3 years would see a lot of "belt tightening" from transportation to classroom assistants..


Do not know what your endorsements are, but mostr schools have staff starting today and students first day is August 25..if you have a SpEd endorsement it is very possible to find a position--may be math / science/

I usually overestimate the amount taken out for taxes, 401K, etc. so you will have a little more to work with than you set up in your mind. If you estimate 75 percent, I'd say 70 just to have a little more of a blanket.

Also, the other posters are right. The competition for jobs is very stiff. There are vacancies, but chances are there is a laid off employee who will get preference over an external employee. Just have an open mind, be flexible and be patient. Education jobs used to be taken for granted around here because they were so plentiful. Boy, did we get a slap in the face! Good luck to you and keep your eye on the prize
