Default Teaching at an Indian Reservation...

checking this out for a friend of mine not familiar with this forum... anyhow, she is a teacher in Hendry Co FL at an Indian Reservation there. I mentioned to her about the Cherokee area, and she was wondering if there was a need for teachers there in the Cherokee area, and how much teachers were paid there on the reservation. She has been a teachers for a few yrs now, and at the Indian reservation in FL, she makes in the mid $40k's...

Pay about the same in Cherokee NC? Thx all.

You might want to post that inquiry in a California thread, we're about 3000 miles away.

I don't get the feeling that teachers on the Cherokee reservation are paid particularly well based on conversations overheard, but I could be wrong. The majority of teachers also appear to be Cherokee. Certainly worth a try, though.

If you do end up teaching there, you'll be working in a brand new state-of-the-art facility. They just had the grand opening on their 476,000 square foot K-12 school. I was one of the project architects on the job. It's an amazingly large facility... complete with performing arts center and football stadium.

I do know that some of the classes are taught in their native language. Skins (indians) get first dibs on all jobs.

Cherokee is not called a reservation it is called the Qualla Boundary, the land was granted to the Eastern Band of Cherokee and they were not part of the removal.

Cherokee History: Chief Yonaguska and the Qualla Boundary


I have a friend that's working as a teacher on the Navajo Rez and she is white, but she does say it can be difficult for a white person being isolated on the Rez. She is provided housing along with her salary. Many of the Rez's out west are large, rural and very poor.

If you want and idea of what modern day Rez life can be like rent the movie Skins, directed by Chris Eyre. It was about and filmed on the Pine Ridge Rez. The book is even better BTW.
