Hi, I have a bit of a problem. I teach a short (2.5 hr) preschool class. The place where I work also has an all day day care/ preschool class for children of the same age and has before and after school care for older children. They have two basic positions, lead teachers and assistants. They have fairly high standards for their lead teachers and have had a VERY hard time finding people to work that qualify for what they pay. I am a lead teacher with all the qualifications. I just saw an ad in the paper two days ago for lead teachers at my center (which is getting to be the norm), but the starting rate of pay was stated as $3-$5 an hour more than I make doing the same job. When I started about a year ago, the rate of pay was one set amount for the lead teaching position which is what I'm paid (plus a raise I received on 1/1/08, still $3-$5 less than the ad). I don't know if I should go to my director and ask to be paid according to the new scale or not? What's the norm for this?
