Teacher appreciation deal thread become teacher complain about pay and benefits thread. I appreciate teachers, but to complain about it is silly. You chose to go to school so you could become a teacher, then complain that it's not fair. More fair than working at McDonald's and slinging burgers and fries all day. More fair than sewing together shoes in an African sweat shop. There's always someone who has it worse.

Quote from StrongMarmot1323 :
I am an elementary school teacher. 50k a year, health insurance is outrageous, (1200 or so for my family of 4) days off are nice, but work 60 hours a week during the school year.

If I didn't have my disabled veteran money to supplement my income I would not be able to do it. Not sure if these people commenting actually know what teachers make. (I'm in Texas, state makes a difference)

Teacher pay is garbage. I am getting my masters and moving into administration. More money, half the work, gonna be great.
Half the work? LOL, probably true, but teaching is a part time job. Teachers work six hours a day for UP TO 180 days per year. In my district, teachers AVERAGE 100% taken of personal and sick time (which they would get cash for if left until retirement). The 180 days includes five days of teacher development which is spread over ten days with kids dismissed after shortened 'non-teaching' days. Lately, we have been blessed with 'bag days' which are snow days that do not need to be made up.

You should be grateful some community is willing to pay you $50k/year for what a teacher does. Most babysitters get a lot less -- and no benefits.

A lot of you guys just want to whine just to whine and talk crap. So what you get an alert? Click it and don't like it, ignore it. What, it wasted 5 seconds of your life? Teachers are so unappreciated. Da fuq is your guys issue with them? I had to do remote learning with 4 of my kids between the aged 4 and 9 since March 2020 and I'm going crazy. You guys think it's so easy, but it ain't. Yea they chose that profession, but it don't mean people should talk crap. If they want to whine about their pay and their job, let them. You think you guys never whine about your jobs. Get over yourselves..

It depends on where you work. I'm a 10 year teacher (p.e.) and I make 100k a year, full benefits, and a retirement strs plan. Since I chose p.e. I work my normal work day, go home to my family and don't grade any written work. It's great! Only downside is I live in Southern Cali.
Your definitely are not in LA Unified, where is this paradise?

Quote from wizwor :
When my oldest got home from 8th grade, he had a 'summer packet' that had to be completed and returned in September. It represented everything a high school math student should know. He took the test. Got 1/3 right, got 1/3 wrong, and did not know what to do with 1/3. I spent my six weeks vacation teaching that kid everything he was supposed to have been taught in eight years of public school. It only took six weeks of good teaching to catch him up.

The public schools are only a bill for me now, but, at one time, they threatened my children's ability to earn a living. Teachers are overcompensated and damn near worthless. Despite them, most of us get along well enough in the real world. In my sleepy school district (Timberlane in Plaistow New Hampshire), we had a teacher fired for having a 'consensual' relationship with a high school girl and another (middle school soccer coach and gym teacher) jailed for multiple counts of downloading child pornography.

Says a lot that you are going crazy remote learning with your kids. Probably a good thing you can dump your kids in a public day care center.
I will ask were you checking in on your child's progress during these 8 years of schooling? If you were it shouldn't be a shock where your kid was at. Also it is easy to teach a kid one on one and if it only took 6 weeks then it sounds like your kid had some pretty good foundational knowledge. Thank you for working with your kid and helping them, that is what a parent is supposed to do if their kid is behind or struggling.

Where is this magical district? Nearly all of the districts in my state (WA) are 180 days of school plus 2-5 days of training that are part of their contract. I know one maybe two teachers that use all of their personal days and sick days each year. Most teachers would rather show up to work sick then take a day off because it is more work to create quality sub plans and then get your students caught back up than to just teach sick.

I will ask were you checking in on your child's progress during these 8 years of schooling? If you were it shouldn't be a shock where your kid was at. Also it is easy to teach a kid one on one and if it only took 6 weeks then it sounds like your kid had some pretty good foundational knowledge. Thank you for working with your kid and helping them, that is what a parent is supposed to do if their kid is behind or struggling.
Report cards and teacher conferences. He was an A student that could not do the math. From grade school, I raised concerns over how the kids learned math -- specifically drilling 'math facts'. I was assured things were different now. The Danville Elementary school vindicated me with poor math scores on statewide testing. I had my kids complete a 16x16 multiplication table until they could do these math facts off the top of their head. When my oldest came home from the first day of his eighth grade math class with a review that his third grade completed getting only one wrong, I emailed the instructor and he told me not to assume eighth graders could add, subtract, multiply, and subtract. He said the review told him where he needed to begin the year.

They did not separate kids by ability until high school. Football, cheerleading, and band had mandatory summer practice -- but not academics.

When you read about Mr. Buatti, understand that he is only the second worst sex offender employed by the school district at the time. Also, Windham hired Timberlane's assistant superintendent despite his involvement in the Buatti affair...

The school board sealed the minutes of the meeting where the superintendent and the superintendent advised the board of Buatti's sex crimes for 99 years. They let him continue to prowl the middle school locker rooms for another 14 months before accepting his resignation.

Where is this magical district? Nearly all of the districts in my state (WA) are 180 days of school plus 2-5 days of training that are part of their contract. I know one maybe two teachers that use all of their personal days and sick days each year. Most teachers would rather show up to work sick then take a day off because it is more work to create quality sub plans and then get your students caught back up than to just teach sick.
Timberlane Regional School District in Plaistow NH. My kids had some great teachers, but many were terrible and some were criminal.

BTW, I was in the school buildings more each month than my father was in my schools over the course of twelve years with me. I was also a member of the school district's budget committee. My kids survived the Timberlane Regional School District. Now it is just a [tax] bill for me.

Thank you to the teachers that care about the children with no agendas.

Now lets talk about the other teachers...
You know, the ones that are not so "good".

Since we are all setup for "remote learning"
Isn't it time to fire a bunch of these "bottom-of-the-barrel teachers.

We have a real opportunity to get rid of some of this dead weight and get rid of the bottom 20%-40% of these teachers.

I think the process needs to be reimagined from the bottom up. We created regional schools so kids could have a more diverse academic experience. Now we can do that virtually. Now we know that commuting kids on buses and shuffling them around physical schools is unhealthy. Close the mega schools, re-open local schools, leverage technology to all the best teachers to teach more kids, and pay for it all by eliminating support staff and dead wood. VLACS.ORG is free to all New Hampshire students, but there are national options as well.
