Hi! I teach in the canadian mid-west. I have been teaching for 23 years, most of my career has been in the Separate (Catholic) School System, which is publically funded. We have one very strong, 100 year old uninon for every teacher in our province. With my four year Bacholor of Education degree, I make 70 566, with our negotiated wage for the fall of 09, I will gross73 036. We pay about 36% income tax, which is on par for most Canadians. We also have national health care. We have perscription, dental, orthodontic, and vision coverage along with many, many other benifits.

I thank God everyday that I am valued as a catholic professional. I love teaching and I love teaching our faith.

I am very saddened to read about the paltry pay that Catholic teachers receive south of the border. Teachers work so very hard.

Thanks for listening.
