Portland OR
With MA $34,2543.
But our contract is up in June. They want to freeze salaries and cap insurance benefits meaning they want us to pay $178 out of our own pockets. Plus they want to cut 2 weeks out of the school year (and our salary), making our school year the shortest in the US.
 The 1st round of job openings jus came out. There was only one 1/2 time art opening. I have been cut 20% for next year.

  Subject: Beginning salary

      Just out of curiosity....what is the beginning salary of a first year teacher in your school district(s)? AND, are your first year teachers paid any kind of bonus for signing up?
  When answering, please name your city and state (if you care to).
      What is the highest salary you can earn (top of the pay scale)?
