I now earn 3 times the amount on an entry level position. I am on fly in fly out 1 week on 1 week off. And I must say its been heaven compared to teaching.
A mumber of ex-teachers would be curious what you have to do on a mine site to earn 3 times a teachers salary?

I'm sure they would. There are a lot of miners too but that's all you are going to get out of me.

Not a lot. They are paying up to $300,000 for train drivers. Fast-food joints up north have advertised manager positions at more than $100,000 and still no takers. People with basic trade skills are raking it in.

I wanted to make a difference being from a poor TI background but realised that the institution is failing the kids. Outcomes education is a joke, funding is mismanaged and if you logistically look at it teachers are not being paid enough.
In WA they send teachers to do a rural stint for permancy and they come back with a negative attitude to the kids and the system.
The admin don't care as long as they don't have to report on issues within a school.
What a lot of the staff don't realise is there salary will never match other industries as it is tied to the public sector.
Throw in the fact that it is seen as a "carers" position and they find excuses not to pay.
I cabled a schools IT infrastructure, ran sporting clinics, visited kids homes to encourage attendance... We would literally have the school after school. All 400 of them in sports.
I would work from 6 in the morning to 6 at night and be paid only for 6.5 hours of work. Then I had to put up with people's stupid comments about teachers getting plaid to much and having to many holidays. In which case I would reply... Cool pay me an hourly rate it would be much better for myself and the teaching fraternity.

Different situation over here... with work and jobs in the manufacturing sector being sent to other countries, and the older people being downsized, then having to find increasingly scarce jobs, and the replacement jobs you do find in the service sector only paying about a third of what you were making...
Then we have the gvt cooking the books in a couple of ways...
You are 'unemployed' only if you are collecting unemployment insurance benefits. But that only goes on for so long, 99 weeks. When you are unable to find comparable work, partly due to age, and you run out of benefits, then you fall off the end of your benefits and just 'disappear'. You are no longer considered unemployed.
Lots of companies will no longer hire the older worker. A 61 year old worker will cost more for healthcare insurance, he will have a training curve, only to retire in 5 years.
They hired college interns as replacements. They will screw up more than they fix. But they don't have to pay them any benefits.
So instead of being higher up on a learning curve and making a higher income based on experience, competence, longevity and loyalty, you get the carpet yanked out from under you and find yourself out on the street, competing for increasingly scarce jobs in industry, or cheap no-mind warm-body service jobs flipping burgers. But hey, a job is a job, right?
So, strategically, I figured out that they were pouring money into tech schools for retraining, so that might be a fruitful endeavor... And I could teach. I'm still paying my dues to get my foot in several different doors, and different institutions...
Problem is that it's ALL adjuncts, with absolutely NO benefits, vs being an employee with the usual healthcare, holidays and vacations... of which, the health care is the biggest concern...

If I was in your shoes being and American I would check the hiring of staff in Iraq I know a lot of guys who are setting themselves up from that side by doing this. Due to the negative media attention on it. I would be purchasing gold and silver too. Inflation is going out of control and obamas moves are going to make it worse.

Forget about mutual funds, super, savings etc its all going to mean nothing in the future.

That is correct, teachers work much longer hours than indicated by a school day - preparation doesn't happen in the classroom and nor does assessments, reports, research, meetings with peer teachers - it is not what it appears to be to those looking in - there is no way I would teach full-time, to do so you would be working 7 days a week and the stress would be tremendous.

A lot. But suggest you read up on it - it is remote area work. And even more money if you have a mining background. As the other poster said, plenty of work in Iraq too.

A typical day runs about 4 hours for us, no extra activities after, and we do get pair for some prep time at half rate. although I will soon be doing a duplicate 4 hr sessions, split shift 2 days a week.
Prep times vary, depending on what I'm doing.
If I know the subject cold, or am pretty much just following the book, I can just go in and teach it. But I always try to bring in extra material to help illuminate the subject at hand, bring in practical physical examples and working classroom demonstrations of what I am talking about, and have them do hands on work, so they 'get' it. I want to bring the material to life. I would feel totally insulted, and ripped off, if some idiot teacher just sat up in the front of the room and read to us from the book. I can READ. I have heard of teachers doing this. They are NOT teachers in my book.

I think they have been posted on various adult sites. What's curious is how so many adults found them so quickly? it's almost like they knew where to look. Certainly not on youtube.

Seen piccies of him in the Australian media. He does seem like an "attractive" male model exhibitionist.

Schools may need to draw a line on how attractive a teacher is so they don't distract the students.
