I am considering working for Harrisburg but I want to get some information on salary and the cost of benefits. I really need to have a good estimate of what my take home pay would be if I decide to leave my current job in Baltimore. Any help would be appreciated. Please feel free to PM me.

Generally teaching jobs in Pennsylvania are highly sought after. While there is talk of a teacher shortage that seems to just be for large city schools. This is a strong union state and in many school districts there are only a few openings a year and often they go to someone that is known to someone teaching or in administration. You can look for jobs here: Pennsylvania Teaching Jobs - Where Pennsylvania School Teachers & Administrators Find Jobs - PAREAP I would not quit one job before getting another. This article is from 2015, so add a little more. In the Lehigh Valley, there are generally raises of 2 - 3% yearly; State education website posts salary info for Pa. teachers

Thanks for the info it was very helpful. Harrisburg and the city seem to have openings but I have to figure out why the teachers are leaving opposed to other districts where they are staying.

Generally, City schools are strapped financially, pay is less and the work is harder. You'll find that in every city school district in Pennsylvania.

Thank you. I definitely believe that ESP since I already work in the city. The pay in york city was actually good but they max out close to my starting salary. I definitely don't want a more difficult job but it may be better than commuting daily. I just need to get the cost of benefits.

Yes I saw so I definitely wasn’t to happy to hear that since I just applied with them. I am also familiar with that type of stuff since I work for Baltimore City Schools so none of it is that new to me. I just need to decide if I want to put up with that for another decade or so.

I need to to do research on the salary info also because I’ve heard it isn’t that high and I also don’t know what deductions would come out.
