Getting a nice raise next year

Our union president informed the certificated employees today that we will be receiving a 10-11% raise next year. In the past few years our former union president hasnít gone to bat for us and weíve hardly gotten anything (lowest salary in our area).

Now the top base pay for a teacher with a Masterís (maxed out on years of service) will be around 80k. Still not comparable to lots of districts around us but itís a start!

Share your salary if you wish!

Year 19.....$42,000 a year. No real raise since 2008. (Our 1-2% raises have only off set the increases in health insurance.)

Congrats on your raise. You deserve it.

Good for you! I'm getting about a $4000 raise this year; the biggest I've gotten since getting my MA degree.

I completed an extra 20 credit hours to move up to the MA+ 20 column, which accounts for about $1800 of the raise. Of course it's kind of a wash for this year, because obviously I had to pay for the classes in the first place. Long term it will obviously pay off.

We got a 2% raise to our base, and also got a step raise, which accounts for the rest of the money. While I'm glad that things worked out this year, due to freezes in previous years I'm currently paid 4 steps behind where I should be.

My P has mentioned that she wants to do weekly PD next year through one of our grants, which we would have to be paid for and would account for about another $150 per month after taxes.

We also got another grant that will allow us to run after school programs. We haven't heard any details about how many of us would get to do this or what the pay is, but I'm hoping that could be a way to earn good extra money. I have considered getting a 2nd job, but the idea of working for minimum wage just kills me. I am hoping that these after school programs pay well and that I can participate.

Our salary scale tops out at about $82,000, unless you get a doctorate which obviously very few people do (and I'm not sure it would really be worth it, when you consider paying for said doctorate in the first place).

I pay nothing for my employee-only heath insurance, but we have a high deductible plan, meaning it's several hundred dollars to walk in the door to a Dr's office. You pay every cent out of pocket until reaching $4,000, and then pay 20%. I'm generally healthy and never use my insurance, so it works out fine for now, but if I were to get into an accident or something I'd be screwed.

We don't have a contract for next year. we typically only get about a $1,200 raise since I'm at top step, and usually at least half of that goes to increases in insurance premiums. 33 years with a bachelor $66,200 I think. Districts around us are somewhat better I think.

Iím starting year 15 next year in my district. I have my masters. My base pay will be $98,000 + $10,500 for longevity so a total of $108,500. This is in NJ in an inner city school district. Most districts in NJ donít have such good longevity pay. We call it combat pay.

Pay

My district's pay is no longer based on years of teaching and education, instead it's based on "highly effective" effectiveness steps. I have no real idea how it works. All I know is that it tops out at around $85,000 and after 20 years of teaching and two master's I'm not even close to the top.

I imagine I'll get about $1,000 more in pay next year. Maybe.

We just settled our contract. Max after 17 years is 96,000. We have longevity and higher ed pay also. 27 years and with longevity it is 107,200. The new contract has two steps added so it will be 19 steps next year. If you have a masters itís an additional 2,500. The cost of living is high so itís a decent salary. Many teachers pay tolls to get to work and our healthcare is expensive.

I'm at $50,000 after 24 years in NC. I don't get a raise. Teachers with 15-24 years experience all make the same amount. Next year, I will move to $52,000, and that will be the cap of what I can make. Anyone want to move to NC?

I've taught 27 years and have a Master's degree. I make $55,000 and will probably never make more than that.
Im happy for you, but it seems to me that common standards should bring common pay scales.

Want to know why teachers in Oklahoma walked out???
17 years and only making $37,000
Not worth getting my masters because it would take 10 years to pay it back with $1500 raise.
We were promised a $6000 raise for next school year. Walkout ended and now the petitions are signed to stop the raise. Very sad state that I live in.
