Carla wrote in about this--I have to agree with her, I am through
jumping through hoops. Besides, I don't trust the powers that be to make
good on their promises of extra pay every year. Here in Calif. they are
always changing the laws in education.
Give every teacher a raise everywhere in the country--do it now. We
should start out at $40,000.00 a year and make more than the
administrators. We work harder than they do. Just because teaching
is/was a women's profession doesn't mean that we have to be paid lowly
servants' wages for the future.
