Last year I worked at a Catholic school Mon-Thurs that paid 15K, no benefits. It was really tough, but I did it so I could get my graduate practicum in on Fridays and still get some experience along the way. When they offered me a second year with the same exact contract, I turned it down. My current Catholic school's salary schedule starts at $34,000 with a BA, but the tuition is higher than most schools. This teacher pay is still around 10k less than area public schools, and the salary steps are much lower, but the school also pay for materials, professional development and graduate tuition.
