    So I came into today after doing my bus duty (side note: it's freaking cold) and got my classroom set up for the day and everything. Opened up my email, had a nice email waiting for me. It started off Dear Mr [me], I'm pleased to offer you the position of Vice Principal at [middle school]. So I guess I got the job :D

    Thanks everyone! He was saying that I'll know for sure once I get my packet from hr that they're going to mail for me but sometime in June. Basically the end of this school year then I can do my onboarding and everything. But he said they're having a new faculty luncheon thing sometime in March he wants me to attend.

    What state are you in? 75K for a viceprincipal job would be way low in my area.

    I'm in Massachusetts and I agree I feel like it's kinda low but at the same time it's like 10k more than what I was getting. I think it's fair considering I don't really have the experience

    Is 10k worth all the added headache and extra time commitment the job will likely entail? That's what I would wonder, and would probably find the 10k through tutoring or other side jobs sooner, but I guess you may be more looking at it as stepping stone to get up to the principalships etc.

    Yeah I've considered all that and I'd have to say that yes it is.

    That's surprising to me! I teach in MA and teachers make up to 90/100K here.

    Our state is a really odd state. Teacher salaries range from 65k to 105k/yr which makes the average salary somewhere in the $75k range. Or if you take the total amount of salaries divided by the amount of teachers in this state, you get an average in the 75k range. But at the same time, it's not all about the money, either. If it was, well, I would have probably tried to get at a school that t pays better.

    Yes, but he needs the VP experience to eventually apply for principal jobs. And VP salaries increase by quite a bit each year so might top out in the six-figure range, I’d imagine.

    As Aces said, though, it's not always all about the money for everyone.

    Yes, but I was responding to other posters who were surprised by the lower starting salary. I was merely stating that it will start on the lower side and then quickly increase, relatively speaking, so it will be worth it eventually.

    Yeah I have to agree. I mean it probably is on the low side but it's not something I'm going to loose any sleep over. Our bills and everything is paid and we live well below our income level and we're doing fine as is. Besides... If it really were about money, I'd go find a job with some money like what my husband makes. (~$160k/yr).
