Hello, I have been offered a Pre-k position at a private school I have been working at part time for almost 8 years. A little about me, I am certified from birth to 6th grade in general Ed and just finished my masters degree in special Ed 1-6 grade. I have been subbing for three years. I am just curious as to what the logistics of benefits and salary for a pre-k position would be. Ive been applying to jobs for about 3 years and even though I have experience subbing, unfortunately schools want experience with lesson planning which I don't have. This isn't a job I would keep forever, but I think it really would help me in interviews and give me that first year experience. However, I would definitely need to negotiate salary. The pay at this school in general is low, I know I'm not going to be making a lot but I want to make sure that I'm making enough. So in general if you are comfortable sharing, how much do you make as a Pre-k teacher? Also, what are your health benefits like? This school doesn't give benefits to everyone but I made it clear I need benefits... I just don't want to get jipped in the long run. Basically I am just curious what I should look for generally when talking and negotiating with my boss. I don't want to be taken advantage of just because I'm inexperienced and young.
