    Not only do they have to deal with kids, they have to deal with parents. Their job doesn't start when the kids show up and when they leave. They don't stop working in the summer, they are constantly going to meetings and trainings to keep up with standards.

    If you went to school and were actually aware, you would have seen how hard your teachers had to work first hand. IF any of you had kids, you would see how hard they work first hand.

    Teachers deserve wages akin to doctors, IMO.

    I honestly don't blame people for not wanting to be teachers. No one respects them.

    Bunch of slack jaw ****ing phaggots in this thread and OP is the king. And yes, if you go to school for 7 years and get a PHD, you should make 6 figures.
    My wife, my mom, and several of my good friends are teachers.

    Not one has worked a 12 hr day in their life. It's a part time job.

    I'm an engineer. I've work 12 hr days multiple times a month.

    Your teacher's sob stories are no different from any other professional position except instead of kids and parents it's clients and customers.

    Teacher deserving doctor's wages is comical. Elem ed is top 5 easiest 4 year degrees out there.

    I'm sure your wife, mom, and friends are amazing teachers... doing the bare minimum.

    Do they know you don't respect them or their jobs?

    Brilliant argument.

    Did I say anywhere in my posts I don't have respect for teachers?

    I said in my very first post
    I still think they earn every penny but to complain that you don't make enough is pure ignorance.

    you can look up teacher salaries by name in some states, including Illinois. i lol at mongloids and sloots that went to hs with me when i looked up their salaries.

    i know one that makes $108k. divorced with a kid, remarried her husband, had another kid, divorced again. bankrupcy happened somewhere there too, and she just bought a new audi that she finances at i'm guessing 40% interest. bought like a 900k house that they foreclosed on, just lol at teachers.

    another has like 9 phd's, teaches 4th grade for 60k/yr, and has 300k in college debt. wife is snowflake with 13 phd's clearing 30k a year as a child psychologist or something. just lol at their lives.

    i wonder if my teachers growing up were the drek of their graduating class, like all the ones in my class are.

    Can't comment on the salary (depends on the state), but being a teacher is a thankless job. Imagine having to deal with little weasels all day and then the parents. This is not exclusive to public school. Private school kids can be just as bad.

    As for your accountant and engineer friends... maybe they just suck at negotiating the terms of their employment. Or maybe they chose the wrong career.
    teachers don't pursue their careers blindly. they know what they are getting themselves into and what the job entails. they know there will be shyt head students/parents.

    don't complain after the fact. just like any job out there. if you don't like it leave.


    ie doctor: they know the schooling/ loans/ dealing with sick ppl... don't bitch and moan afterwards.

    Not one of them has had to do prep work (which is done outside school hours) for a class?

    Hard to believe OP. I know about a dozen teachers (ex-GF was one) and every one of them came home at the end of the day and put in at least few more hours at home prepping or marking. Most were doing that chit on weekends too.... and that’s not even counting the ones who decided to coach teams on top of that (taking up even more free time).

    Thankless? You should try engineering. Heck, teachers are thanked constantly. They even have a teachers appreciation week.

    boo hoo, all real jobs you have to deal with bullchit but dont get a part time schedule. A teachers job is a piece of cake compared to how much they get paid.

    I'm sure somewhere, some district had a workout like that potentially. But it's gotta be the rare exception. The teachers I've dated work like 7:45-2:30 and MIGHT grade papers for an hour once or twice a week in the evening.

    The teacher I was friends with years ago straight up told me he switched from accounting to teaching because he liked to surf and travel.

    I'm not debating SOME teachers might go above and beyond and work crazy overtime hours by their own choice. But they is far from the standard, so we definitely shouldn't be establishing pay with them being the example.

    Oh, and the one teacher I dated said once she got her PHD, her district automatically bumps her salary to 6-figures. For teaching 2nd graders.

    I have friends who are accountants and engineers who don't seem to make as much as the fkkn elementary teachers I know. And those people MIGHT get 3 weeks vacation at this point in their career, not 10 weeks.
    I'm a teacher and have been for 5 years. Unions don't hold much power in my state. I've never even been approached or asked to join one in 5 years now. Only a handful of teachers I know are in one. You can't be a bad teacher and get by at least around here. You are rated throughout the year and principals have all the swing.

    So because we can afford a vacation, that's being paid too much? It's about the same as police and firefighters make where I live.

    My district gives you $2,000 more if you have you PhD and you're only in the classroom. So not sure I believe all that jazz. Doesn't make sense. You go into curriculum or administration with that.

    I still think they earn every penny but to complain that you don't make enough is pure ignorance.


    Example:

    Avg US teacher's salary = $60,477
    Hours worked - 8:30-3:30 = 7 hrs - 35 hrs/week. pretty sure they have a lunch break in there but we won't include because of all the extra "work" they do after 3 pm when in reality they just wait for the last kid to get picked up.
    Weeks worked = 40
    Total hours/year = 1,400

    Holidays = 17 days = 119 hrs
    3 weeks of PTO = 105 hrs
    1,400 hrs - 119 hrs - 105 hrs = 1176 hrs per year

    Avg teacher $/hr salary = $51/hr

    That's a $106k/year job @ full time


    For comparison:
    Typical 40 hr/week job = 2080 hrs
    Holidays = 5 days = 40 hrs
    3 weeks PTO = 105 hrs

    2080-40-105= 1935 hrs

    Full timers work 759 hrs more per year. That's 19 more weeks of work.
    You know teachers work at home too. How the fuk you think they go through all their student's work and grade them? They definitely don't do all that sh!t at work. They bring it home. So it is probably more like 10 hours of work a day.

    scantron has been a thing forever, easy peezy. In case the teacher hasn't wised up and isn't using scantron they can grade papers when kids are at assemblies and chit. Not a hard job bro

    All professions bring work home with them. It was a wash when calculating hours.

    You being in a state without a massive teacher union presence is why it's so different.

    You CANNOT teach in public schools in California (or most other liberal states) without being part of the union. You're also not allowed to negotiate your own compensation in most places. It's all part of the union and not tied to YOUR performance.

    It sounds like you're in a free state where teachers are actually employed on their own merits, which is what should be the case everywhere.

    Unions ruin everything. The largest grocery chain in SoCal went on an extended strike years ago and now baggers get $15-20/hr with full medical benefits paid 100% by the employer. All the union grocery stores have pretty much folded since then and everything is Walmart grocery. lol

    My brother in law is a teacher.

    He told me a funny story where another teacher told the parents their son was "retard"

    He was trying say "their son is always late"...I.e "retard" is French for "late".
    Misc's fascination with ancient archaeology would explain why some older Female Miscers have such high rep power.

    Being a teacher should be a choice made out of passion(what they all claim they do it for), not for the money (what they all want). Not many jobs out there that can combine both high passion and money. Stop complaining about the money when you're working a job you're passionate about. Should have made different decisions if you wanted $$$

    This^ You all need to read their posts above. Most probably those who doesn't understand have no kids.

    We have 5 kids at home, but 4 of them are in college now. Schools are basically like their 2nd home and teachers are like their 2nd parents growing up.

Should have made different decisions if you wanted $$$
    Generally speaking, I do believe we are compensated appropriately. I'm paid at around $57,000 a year. It was $48,500 5 years ago when I started. This is the norm in my area as I live in the DFW metroplex. There are a lot of small towns that still pay in the 30's down here. Our retirement and benefits are also very good which is great.

    Wife is also a teacher. Double my pay and there's our income. We both have side hustles, but our pay is fine. We live in a moderate 3 bedroom 2 bath house. Big lot for our location. We owe no debt other than our mortgage and she has some student loans still. Both vehicles are paid off. Not too much to complain about. Just don't be an idiot with your money, and that will go for anyone at any position. We try and take one nice vacation a year, which most people probably do regardless... but not this summer as we were hit hard by some unexpected home repairs.

    Lol, and this is very true depending more so on where you live at times. We're both at Title 1 schools with a lot of very poor families. Some of the behaviors kids think are OK because they see them at home are just crazy. I hate to say that you can see how poverty and certain lifestyles are a cycle. Kids grow up seeing crazy stuff, and they think it's normal and appropriate to act that same way.
    Being anti-2nd Amendment is like saying "We have too many rights, please take some away!"
