    You should be making way more than $13/hr with a Masters degree...

    Sometimes we get what we can find. Less stress and less money outside publc school.

    Kindercare is a chain that pays slightly higher than most child care centers. But they offer full benefits, which is good.

    Non-profit and social service agencies have their own child care centers too.

    I did. I got.... Just over $16/hour with my masters degree :p:p:oops:
    My assistant made about $13/hr and she had been there for almost 25 years.
    But again, I left that job :D

    CW, I put some ideas in the thread, Career Advancement. You don't have to limit yourself to teaching. There are plenty of other positions in early childhood that are rewarding and pay a good salary. You work with staff and parents, and see kids, but don't have to work with them on a day-to-day basis. These jobs are not limited to Head Start. Any social service agency with preschool programs usually have the same requirements. And, you won't have to worry about TRS.

    I know :( she's in her 50s now so she's trying to stick it out even though she is tired of teaching.
    Thanks, I'll check it out!

    Have you ever thought about teaching in a child care center on a college/university campus?? Check out my last post, just now in “Career Advancement”. That might work for you as well!

    Only faculty earns a pension. Colleges have their own version of TRS. But child care teachers on college campuses are considered as staff workers! Win-win for you!
