All the time you wait to get a job, just praying you get one so you can pay back all those loans you took out to pay for your college. I am sure you can do it, you sound like a determined person!
Don't stop their ! After you get your degree you then must start working on your Masters degree another ten thousand plus out of pocket. Then you start working on your Rank I another Ten plus thousand dollar out of your pocket. You end up going to college for seven or eight years plus all of the PD updates (21 hours per year) from then on.

Most teachers in Clay are contracted to work 183 days and have 12 pay periods spread over 12 months.
We get paid on the 8th of the month. So I guess that we are no better off than the first of the monthers if you want to look at it this way. First of the month 8th of the month doesn't matter. So tomorrow night look out bank here I come I'll be there at 12 o'clock sharp.

I'm all for going to college and partying for 4 1/2 years.
And the 6 weeks of sitting on my ass watching somebody else teach sounds simple enuf.
The loans wouldn't be a problem I'd let Uncle Sam handle that.
Should be a cakewalk considering all the flunkies that teach now.

Listen at you educators complain your still off 182 days a year!!!!! That's crazy, what other job does that? The majority of real working class get maybe 14 days off per year. If that's not a Dream Job tell me what is.

The reason some of us may stay is that in order to not lose a great deal of money each month for the rest of our life we have to work until we are at least 55--i will have 34 years experience before i turn 55--any more questions? I will be glad to share what I know or refer you to Teacher Retirement website.

You must be dreaming if you believe that an education can come from partying! Not many who go to school and party 24/7 are able to graduate, actually those are the ones who get kicked out of school, you may not want to count on that deal, and as for US handling those loans, you will not get enough free money to pay for your schooling so you can't count on that, you will still need to take out loans that you will definitely pay back or lose your job! As far as sitting for 6 weeks while a student teacher does your teaching, yes, it sounds like that is what you do, but NO, you are to watch over that person and make sure they are doing the job correctly, so not too much fun and if you are the one pr two of the teachers out of all the schools in the county who gets a student teacher, those odds aren't too good! And as for flunkies, I would assume flunkies are people who flunk in life, and if you flunk in life you likely didn't make it through college and therefore, did not get a degree! You are right it is a cakewalk, so what on earth are you doing on here, get yourself enrolled in college today!!!

There are fifty two weeks in a year, I believe that most workers get the weekends off, considering most jobs are 5 days a week and eight hours a day, so that adds up to 104 days they get off during the year, not to say how many sick days they are allowed which is usually somewhere around 10 which then adds up 114 days and that is not even counting the holidays. No teacher is complaining about their jobs. I am sure most teachers love their jobs and the pay they get, having the summer months off are awesome, no one in their right minds would complain about that, but what I don't understand is if you think it is the best job in the world why don't you go to college and become a teacher? there is no reason why you can't as long as you are determined to make it you can!

I'm like you, which teachers retired? I thought that was what this thread was really started about! Have their jobs been filled? I know they've not been posted but that don't mean anything around here.

will some jobs finally be opening up for new teachers who've been patiently waiting?
I'm curious to see if the ones that didn't get rehired and was told it was because of cutbacks get replaced or not. If it was truly because of cutbacks, nobody will be sitting in their classroom taking their place when school begins.
