I have been teaching for 9 years and have a master's degree. My catholic School pays me $28,000. We have the latest in technology. I have a smartboard in my room, are offered professional development money. They also pay 85% of my healthcare premium.

We also have to get an additional religious certificate which they pay for but I have to purchase the books.

I make ends meet by tutoring after school and babysitting during the summer. It is very hard to find any elementary teaching job in Missouri. If I worked for a public school, I would make about $50,000.00.

I guess that I'll have to wait for my fringe benefits when I get to heaven.

Thank goodness I love where I teach and what I do. I do hate never having any money to do things with my friends. I am thrifty and spend any extra funds on my classroom. I also spend time on weekends at school working, so if I want to teach, I will never be rich or out of debt but at least I will love what I have to do to live.
