I currently live in Canada, but will be moving next year to Florida (probably Miami) after I get married I have NO idea what the pay is for techers. This is the knowledge I need in order to choose what I want to teach. I presently teach children with disabilities here in Canada, but will be going back to school in Florida, either for my Florida teacher certification, Montessori certificate, I'm not too sure. Part of this decision will be based on the different pay scales and benefits of teachers. The system in the U.S. is compleletly different from that of Canada's system, so I get kind of confused So if anyone could explain the pay scale and possibly the benefits of elementary, Montessori, and day care teachers, that would be FANTASTIC!!! Thank you so much for your help! You are helping me make a crucial decision in my life!
