10 reasons it's better to teach at Public vs. Parochial schools
I can't believe I already have 10. Am I just trying to justify my decision?
1. Shorter Year
Kids start September 12 and end May 26th. Crazy!
2. More Pay
I got between a 20-25 % pay boost. Ridiculous.
3. More Resources for Me
One of the teachers said " Have you gotten your computer yet?" I said "no, is it like a 15 year old dell?" she said " No way! It's a macbook" Whaaaa?? It's a lease computer but still. I am going to into a poorer city. I didn't think computers would be a thing in preschool classrooms.
4. More Resources for Kids
Social Worker, Speech Therapist. 4 Head Teachers and 9 assistants! That's insane.
5. Free Panera Bread on Wednesdays.
So I am kind of off of Gluten but the principal goes to Panera Bread on Tuesdays to pick up day old bread and hands it out. I mean it's not a catered meal but day old bread from Panera.. um if I am really needing a fix. Yes Please.
Bathrooms in every classroom. It's a 50 year old building so they might not be great but umm. love it.
7. No Jesus Talk
I can't even talk about Jesus if I wanted to.
8. Friday's for Planning
This is only for my program but omg! Its actually scheduled in.
9. Free Lunches or Semi Free
I asked during my interview if I could also partake in the free lunches provided by the state. I really don't like having to pack my lunch the night before. She said sure.. it might be a few dollars but I am sure we can work it out. The church was not about it.
10. Group Professional Development
We get paid to do Professional Development together. I don't have to go home and do it. It's scheduled. I love it!
