    Wow, this one is pretty good! Back when I was on the teacher salary schedule at my private school, the max step put one at 100k! This beats my school, though now that I’m on the admin schedule it doesn’t matter, lol!

    Yes. I have a Masters, a science teacher down the hall has a PhD, and another science teacher has neither, but we are all in the highest Plus 60 lane. The district pays a 5000 annual bonus for NBCT, but not a different pay scale. There are some other bonuses available, but none offered for advanced degrees.

    We have BA, MA, MA+15, MA+30, MA+45, and PhD. I'm stuck at MA+45 unless I feel like doing a doctorate.

    That's unclear at the moment as we are without a contract. I predict we will get a small raise in the fall after everyone stops arguing. This year it was something like $82K, but that includes a $5K-ish pension pick-up.

    AWESOME! You deserve it and I hope you get even more than that!

    I love it when fellow teachers get the salaries they actually should be getting. :D

    Thanks. I can't complain, though the district is challenging and maybe not worth staying in beyond 20 years. Unlike most districts, your bigger raises are on the front end of your career. One could easily swing 100K at year 20, but after that the money is minimal. (The scale maxes out at 106K in my lane.)

    Hey, 106k is excellent even if your salary will be frozen at that, IMO! And if you invest a decent amount of that every year, then you can easily become a millionaire and then a multimillionaire in short order.

    Go get ‘em! :D

    We have Masters + 15, +30, +45, and +60.

    Right now, I have 9 credits after my masters. My new district offers PD opportunities for free that give you credits that count in district. It is .5 of a credit for each PD (6 hours) and it seems like a great opportunity.
