Re: “Diane Douglas: I Want $400M Invested in Our Teachers Immediately

Rat T after 12 years by base salary is 34K a year. I teach very few undocumented students but I do teach 41 students per class period and spend my nights and weekends grading over 200 students' work. I love my job. I can only afford to do it because my husband works in the private sector. I have never seen a paycheck over 900 because I am unemployed for 2 months and stretch my paycheck out over the summer. I too pay into my pension and to upgrade my insurance to usable. Please remember that TUSD might have its problems but it is only one school district. My students deserve more attention to their work and their learning and I deserve a living wage. All I ask is for my salary to keep up with inflation, manageable class sizes and classroom supplies like board markers, printer ink, textbooks and/or databases. I would like a library and librarians who can support my students acquisition of knowledge and a safe school in which the roof doesn't leak. Go volunteer at a school and see that most teachers are competent professionals who want what is best for their students.
