Re: Teachers, $?
NC has a state salary, then each county (I believe each one) has supplement pay. For the first 4 years teachers start at 35,189. Then they make about $400 more.
They have kept us at the same pay scale for several years. I've been teaching for 16 years, so my salary is more. On paper I make a decent amount-but my take home barely sustains our family (my dh works part-time, so I am the insurance holder, bread winner).
