I guess the teachers there are under a different set of rules. I heard that they are started at $26 hr? Does Anyone know?

I am not sure, but community college jobs usually only hire as part-time status.

OMGosh! i have a question i am a highly qualified preschool teacher with a master's in earlychildhood education P-3 in NJ and I am currently in Step 4 in nj salary scale. If i was to move to become a NC teacher this year, where will I stand as far as salary? Can anyone help me?

Thanks
Have you considered working in the private sector (perhaps in a private school) where you can negotiate your salary and benefits based on your qualifications and job performance? That would eliminate basically all of the concerns you mentioned.

Default just some info

Hello,

Thanks fo rthe responses. I am preschool highly qualified teacher in an urban area in NJ and to be honest the preschool teachers start with no experience 47k and with masters between 53k-54k. I love NJ pay and benefits, but it is very expensive to own a home and everyday expenses.

The State Health Plan announced yesterday that they're going to stop paying for vaccines for covered dependents as of December 1st. That's a lot more money parents will have to cough up, even if they're paying hundreds of dollars a month for coverage already. Also, last year Bev Purdue (governor) made all state employees give back .5% of their pay, so we were all shorted in our May & June paychecks to cover this. Also, I believe she wanted to back out of giving teachers their 2nd stipend, not sure if she ended up giving this back. Without unions, the state/corporations control everything. And people who grew up in the south believe that "all unions are bad"...

Think your health insurance is expensive? Try owning a small business with less that 100 employees. NO INSURANCE COMPANY will take you.

Why are teachers in the South (NC) paid only once a month when they work everyday instead of once a month? What happen to an honest days pay for an honest day of work? How can anyone survive the entire month without money until the next pay day?
