Go to school in IL? Curious about your teacher's salaries?

Pretty interesting website. I went to Hoffman Estates HS in District 211... seems that some of the teachers there are fairly well compensated! I was glad to see several of my old, favorite and most memorable teachers make - get this - over $130k a year!

http://www.thechampion.org/schools/salaries.htm

I bummed through the page a bit, even found 2 people who are now teachers, that I went to HS with. They're not doing bad at ALL... and if you were to project their salary out to a 12 month job (remember they only work 10 months out of the year) they actually make MORE than I do!

I should see what it takes to move over and become a HS teacher. Talk about ultimate job satisfaction, summers off, hmmmm. I bet I could teach some sort of technology course (autos, programming, drafting) or maybe some maff classes....

Did you also notice that the home page has a link to sex offenders of Illinois? I've seen that webpage before and has alot of interesting material on it.


So if anyone that has kids wants to know if any live by you just hit that page and you can find out.

Or here is the link:

Yea, I looked at that site a few years ago when I was still in high school, actually in the middle of one of my programming classes with all of the other kids huddled around. When the teacher came over to see what was going on the typical rude, idiot student said you make $60,000 a year! Of course it was hilarious for the rest of us, but she didn't appreciate it very much.

Anyway, that's my story about thechampion.org

Damn!

No wonder my taxes are lower than those folks in Grayslake. Avon school district makes 35k a year vs. the 53k they are paying out there (2 miles away). The high school I pay for gives an average of 52k though.

It says I made $36,564, which I didn't. You have to remember that those figures include benefits (retirement, doesn't deduct insurance costs).

It depends on your current degree, the university studies you took, and the college you go to to get your teaching degree. If it was me, I would only do it if you are serious about it. They have change the certification process. Teaching is now the only profession required to further your education w/o compensation or more pay. Now, you can work it out to get paid more, but it will reach an ending point. A fellow teacher just got his doctorate and he is required to go back to school or take approx. 10 workshops in order for him to get recertified. Hopefully things will change in this respect, but they aren't doing anything to help the teacher shortage.

yeah a while back we had this site either here or on SBN. My dad is a teacher and so obv I looked him up. Then I called him about it. He knew about it and said exactly what Doc just said. Its not exactly accurate but not that far off. I have kidded him around for years about summers off and all. But truth be told no way would I want that job. I have a hard time with just my kid let alone 20 of them. The stories he has told me. Besides, ya wanna pay the people who are teachin your kids well in the hopes that they do a better job IMO.

O and dont sweat RLHS too much Grover. Unless things have changed since I left RL they as so far in the hole they might not be around much longer and those teachers wont be getting those salaries much longer. Or your taxes will skyrocket to keep the school going. Something like 13 million in the hole and the state is or was going to step in. But thats old info.

Yep, I'm bringing home under $25,000 this year.

True about the stories. I've only been teaching 3 years and I have some interesting stories about students and faculty. There are some people in teaching for all the wrong reasons. It's truly disheartening. I have a thorn in my side right now that is making a good run at ruining his tenure. If there is a God, something will be done. Enough said

Yeh I remember that site from last year....very interesting.

Doc...you need to get into a school up here. That take home figure floored me.

I think teachers are very important, but they know going in that the pay for the first several years is not that great. There are a ton of non-financial benefits to being a teacher. They should not be in the field if money is the focus.

State will be stepping in. Last Feb. there was a referendum that needed to pass or else the state was going to take over. It was a moderate increase in taxes. Now that the state is taking over, resident's won't have any say in future property tax increases (at least in terms of school funding). All this was CLEARLY explained in several mailings, but it still failed overwelmingly. I wasn't a registered voter long enough to vote in that election. My taxes will probably go up by 20% by this time next year.

Yep thats what I heard. But your taxes are almost all for the school. I really wouldn't be supprised if that 20% turns into 100% they were talking about double the school alotment. Man I am glad i moved.

The thing about the school up north, forgive me if I offend anyone, but the parents are very involved, but in a bad way. They will believe the student over the teacher and then you catch flack. Also, I would have to commute pretty far in order to afford a place similar to the one we have now. That's what kept us out of Orland/Tinley/Palos area.

I am definitely in it for the reward I get from the job. Summers off is a plus, but I end up working at the school w/ students at risk of dropping out. We try to teach them skill that will be useful outside of school to make them more employable. It's fun, but it doesn't feel like a break. The one thing I hate about teaching is I always have to be on my toes and be thinking. It's almost like taking the SAT, ACT, GRE, MCAT, etc. You're brain gets tired. That's where the summers help...alieviating that pressure.

Anyway, I would put a lot of weight on those numbers. Sure, a principal gets paid six figures, but if you knew half of what he has to put up with...I wouldn't want that job. Also, it's a year long job...no summers off for administration (deans, principals, even most counselors). Also, most PE teachers coach and do extra duties of drivers education to make more money...so that salary might seem high, but they put in their time to.

I'm not trying to defend teachers, because we know we weren't going to get paid a lot going into the profession. Afterall, it's all about the students, not the pay.

Well I definitely wasn't trying to make light of a teacher's job. I know they put up with a LOT of shit. Punk kids, troublemakers, etc. I also know that they have to put in extra time (clubs, coaching, etc.) to make cash.

I just saw it simply from a job satisfaction POV I hate my job, and don't make NEARLY as much as some of my old teachers did... who most likely LOVE their job. And I was glad to see that several of my favorite and most memorable teachers are compensated well for the job they did (which IMO was an excellent one.)

I definitely appreciate teachers... if it weren't for them, I definitely wouldn't be here today, that's for damn sure!

For the fun and satisfaction levels, Doc... I envy you $$$ isn't everything!

well I just got off the phone with my dad. Told him what the site says. He laughed. Its way off now. He makes way more than what it says. But he thinks it might only state the base salary. He teaches PE for an Elementary school in Libertyville. Been there 32 years. He is retiring this year. He is also the AD, coaches 7th grade girls Basketball and several other things. Lets say I was a bit shocked when he told me he's in 6 digit salary. Also what people may not realize teachers in Illinois do not pay Social Security. They have their own retirment system. Of which when you retire, your pension is calculated by the average of the 4 highest years in your last ten at 75% for the rest of your life. I think they are banking that retired teachers dont last too long upon retirement.
