Elementary School Teacher in Oviedo:
"Your pay does NOT increase and people look DOWN on teachers."
Do it because you love it. You may never get a raise and if you do it is so minute that it doesn't matter (like $200 a year). People view you as someone who is below them. In addition, they don't want to increase your yearly wage. They feel like you chose a job taking care of kids and should get paid accordingly. That is untrue. YOU are not a daycare worker, you are an educator who went to school for 4 years to get a degree. So unfair. The positives: You get the summer off, spring break, and winter break. You get to teach kids how to learn. It is an AMAZING feeling.
