You should be making way more than $13/hr with a Masters degree...
Sometimes we get what we can find. Less stress and less money outside publc school.
Kindercare is a chain that pays slightly higher than most child care centers. But they offer full benefits, which is good.
Non-profit and social service agencies have their own child care centers too.
I did. I got.... Just over $16/hour with my masters degree
My assistant made about $13/hr and she had been there for almost 25 years.
But again, I left that job
25 years and she she still made $13/hr?! Wow!
CW, I put some ideas in the thread, Career Advancement. You don't have to limit yourself to teaching. There are plenty of other positions in early childhood that are rewarding and pay a good salary. You work with staff and parents, and see kids, but don't have to work with them on a day-to-day basis. These jobs are not limited to Head Start. Any social service agency with preschool programs usually have the same requirements. And, you won't have to worry about TRS.
I know she's in her 50s now so she's trying to stick it out even though she is tired of teaching.
Thanks, I'll check it out!

Have you ever thought about teaching in a child care center on a college/university campus?? Check out my last post, just now in “Career Advancement”. That might work for you as well!
Only faculty earns a pension. Colleges have their own version of TRS. But child care teachers on college campuses are considered as staff workers! Win-win for you!
