    I know this doesn't really count, but I just wanted to share that I got renewed! And even better, got a 6 % pay increase compared to last year's contract. (everyone got a 3 % raise already 4 months ago, plus now another 3 % for getting on step 3.) And once I turn in my transcripts for the 9 college credits I earned this year, that should be another $1500-1700!

    Oh, and just today I found out I passed BTSA, so I'm done ! I should have my clear credential soon :))
    It's a happy day today.

    Congrats, Linguist! I am moving to a new district in August and I just found out the board approved a 5% pay raise for all teachers! I'll be making more than I thought I would!

    So my fiancé and I are finally making the move back to NY after getting our first two years of teaching out of the way in North Carolina. LOVED it here and our positions were great but we're excited to be back near family. I was just offered a summer Extended School Year position in a WONDERFUL district and they have an opening for the same class for the school year, so hopefully if they're happy with the summer, this position will continue!


    What grade and/or subject? 3-5 Self Contained Special Ed
    How long have you been trying? Since February!
    How many resumes did you send out? oh goodness..40?
    How many interviews or job fairs?- 3
    What general geographic area? Westchester County, New York
