Hi everyone. I have been getting into personal financial more recently (watching Suze Orman, getting better at budgeting, that kind of stuff) and a few more questions about teachers' salaries have come up. If you don't mind me asking, I have a few questions for you all. 1. Do you (or did you before the recession) receive a cost of living or step increase every year? If so (and if you don't mind answering) how much is it? 2. Does your school help pay tuition if you are going back for your Master's? 3. If you did go back to get your Master's, how much more do you earn per year? 4. How much does heath insurance cost you? Thank you so much. I hope that I don't seem too nosy, I have just been thinking about these things lately and can't seem to find any answers on the local school districts' pages.
