I made 12 an hour when I started and 13 an hour when I left two years later. It is pretty easy work, but they are charging parents like 50 an hour at least.

Pk-6

I am in a small Pk-6 school. We have 1 hot choice each day. Sometimes you can get a salad, but that is really hit or miss depending on whether or not the produce truck has managed to show up.
