Listen, if you wish to make any money as an educator, stay away from North Carolina. There is NO union representation and the state controls the pay scale...in other words the pay for a teacher in Charlotte-Meck school district will be the same as a teacher the Rowan-Salisbury district or the Wake County school system. The only other factor that would give you an increase in salary is the county by county supplement (some paces are higher than others, thus giving a disparity in pay throughout the state). The other horrible part of being a teacher in this state is that you only GET PAID ONLY ONCE A MONTH. I assume this is largely in part so the state leaders can rape us in taxes. By the time taxes have been taken out of each of my paychecks, I find that I can hardly afford to live. I swear, people who have families and are educators must rely upon food stamps eat and live in section 8 housing...I don't know how they live!? All I know is that once I attain my Master's Degree I'm out of here and heading back up North where they value education and respect teachers!

Forgetaboutit! The closest thing we have to a union is the NCAE (association of educators). Another thing... Some out-of-state teachers have to be mentored as "new" for about a year. Do not come unless you want a pay cut and a once a month check.
