Heallo everyone! A lot is going on! Here’s what you need to know 😆 😉 Welcome back dearest everywhere: the US, Turkey, the UK, France, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Malaysia, Nigeria, South Korea, Hong Kong, Poland, Brazil, Bulgaria, Italy, Ukraine, Romania, Singapore, Greece, Hungary, Germany, Spain, and al! 😉
Great, give them a raise! 😉 This is the least you can do to keep your schools working since the substitute teachers did not have a raise for the last ten years. Why would anyone want to be on call while getting pennies for a long hectic day taking care of a whole class while others get paid to the roof while staying home?!
CA is unfortunately the worst State in dealing with substitute teachers or guest teachers. Oakland is maybe a bit better than other districts and the pay not only very low ($ 13,000/ year) but also there is no incentives and no medical coverage. Anything they need, the substitute teachers will pay for it. Districts find a way in taking advantage of them.
Maybe it is time for a substantial change to fairly compensate these group of professional the rate they should have gotten a decade ago.
Until we chat again, substitute teachers are poor like too many other working classes, with our hugs and kisses ❤
