All I can say is Hurrah for Pennsylvania.( my retirement is wonderful) Hang in there, Carolyn. I love retirement and I loved teaching, but this is great. I go to live model drawing classes and studio at the museum, learning to bowl 10 pins, tutoring for the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council and enjoying life in general. Fran

I teach in NC and I have ALWAYS had to pay my sub for personal days and field trips...and now I have to pay my sub if I take a day for a workshop...unless it is one that the principal suggests that I attend. Then they pay for that.
We also pay for bus drivers for the activity bus and fuel.
And I, too, feel lucky to have a job.
Right now, NC is still paying the fee for NBC and the 12% increase in pay when you pass...but with the problems with the NC budget this year, I'm wondering how long that will last. That's why I'm trying for it this year...at least they've paid the fee. And I'm doing it for "me", as well as the increase in pay (which does affect my retirement amount)...have to think about the future!
we'll have to pay for our subs for personal days or if we go on a field trip. IF we go on a field trip, we have to find and pay the busdriver, cover our subs, and pay 91 cents per mile for gas.
This art teacher feels lucky to still have a job.
