The other columns below 1a (1B, 2A down to 8B) are based off how much prior experience a starting NYC teacher has
WRONG.. its based upon how many CREDITS they have..not necessarily teaching
Salary Step Eligibility Requirements - Salary - New York City Department of Education is eligible for a salary step increase?
  1. Prior related non-teaching experience
Salary Step Eligibility Requirements - Salary - New York City Department of Education
  • Are eligible for salary step placement based upon both prior teaching experience and prior non-teaching experience for certain licenses (see below)
  • Automatically advance to the next salary step twice each year, in March and on their equate date
Their salary GOES UP TWICE A YEAR!!! From one level to another.. which means they START in the $60's, and within 2 years they can reach the 7B, 8A, 8B levels..

Their levels again START below the 5 year period and it GOES UP to the next level.. and this happens unitl they hit the 5 year period of teaching experience which they THEN get the bump.. Its like trying to educate my 7 year old...

You are really embarrassing yourself....
Yup, private schools, catholic schools, universities, community colleges, and so on.

its not rocket science.. again go to row 7B, 8A, 8B and tell me what salaries you see? These are for people BEFORE they hit the 5 year increment
The only way you get to 7A or 7B is if you have 6 years of experience prior to becoming a NYC teacher, the only way you can get to level 8a or 8B is if you have 7 or 7.5 years of prior experience. All the education in the world isn't going to get you to the $70,000 mark as a starting salary as a NYC teacher unless you have 6 or 7 years of experience elsewhere.

WRONG again. PROFESSIONAL experience does not mean teacher.. It means PROFESSIONAL experience..

People with computer programming experience can teach computer programming WITHOUT a teachers degree, and use their PROFESSIONAL experience as a programmer to qualify.. I thought everyone knew this

I was discussing teaching business and I have no license.. I would have received credits because I run a BUSINESS.. and I would use my PROFESSIONAL experience as a BUSINESS owner to qualify for increases in pay. I would THEN have so many years to GET a teachers license.

It doesnt have to be TEACHING experience.. and the increase takes place every 6 months.. You can start at 4A and in 6 months you'll be 4B, and then 6 months later 5A, and then 6 months later you'll be 5B.. etc.. up until you get the 5 years.. THEN you jump to the 5 year payscale when you hit 5 YR Long.. Its right there.. why is this so complicated to comprehend?

I provided links to backup my claim from the NYC website. Are you claiming you know more about payscales of NYC then NYC does? Thats pretty good.. Maybe you should call them and tell them where they are wrong..

Someone with experience other than a teacher can qualify for the various steps (provided they meet certain requirements), but more often than not its prior teaching experience. My cousin has been a teacher for about 10 years (both in Queens and now here on LI)

Following this line of thinking when it comes to public employee unions. The vast majority of us non-public union employees do not get the sweet benefits that are given to these people at our expense. The people in these public employee unions are receiving special treatment. See, no hypocrisy. In fact it's quite consistent.
