I mean not to offend anyone but for those of you who teach in a preschool, daycare, early learning center how do you afford the lower salary? Does your husband make significantly more than you or do you live a modest lifestyle? I interviewed for a position and the annual starting salary was 32,000. I guess it's not a bad number but public school jobs typically start around 45,000-50,000 where I live.

Wow, Money. I'm obviously teaching in the wrong area!! My starting salary in kindergarten in the public sector was 30,000.

The public schools in my area started at 50 also, but the jobs are almost impossible to get. I've been teaching in a private school and I will only be making 32 going into my 8th year. It stinks but I'm happy to have a job.

I must be in the wrong area, too --- I've been teaching for 24 years and make $62K. (and I'm a single parent with a mortgage!)

public school
masters degree +36 additional credits
3 different certification areas
23 years experience
$55K
That is the highest salary in my district
With the politics going the way they are, I do not expect to see a raise for a long time.

I have also interviewed for positions where I wouldn't have been able to even pay my school/education costs.

I teach in a public school also. I have 3 areas of certification and a master's degree. Beginning salary was only $36,000 when I started teaching. You definitely have to love the job to stay in this profession!

This upcoming school year will be my third. My first year teaching I started at 32, 500 then my second year we had a pay cut in my district so my pay did not change must it went down by almost 500 a year. This year I will be making around 33,200 if we don't have another pay cut. When I get my master's hopefully at the end of July, I lack one class and have been putting it off since December, I will be making around 36,000

This is my third year teaching. I've been with the same school and the same disctrict for all three years. I came in making $42K with a master's degree in ECE. The preschool where I teach is in a public school where there are grades prek-7th grade.

The starting pay w/o a master's degree in my district is $36,181. I am working on my masters plus 30 and I am 12 credits shy of having that. Once I earn the additional 12 credits I will be making a little over $45K.
