Re: Substitute Teaching: input please?
Teresa

    For one, I didn't say anything about the state's ability to
    teach it's children,I think this state (which by the way isn't
    capitalized!) has a very good governor who is constantly
    improving the education for our children. I didn't bash New
    Mexico, I bashed the substitute pay rate. How many people would
    disagree that the pay rate is low? For your information, I
    wasn't home schooled, why are you so bitter? Also, here are some
    links to school districts in Iowa, with substitute pay rates:
    http://www.dmps.k12.ia.us/careeropps/4subteach.htm
    ($116/day)
    http://www.vinton-shellsburg.k12.ia.us/admin/hres/sub.html
    ($98/day)
    http://www.ankeny.k12.ia.us/Admin/Distinfo/humres/subs.htm
    ($105/day)After ten days in the same classroom,(in Iowa) substitute
    teachers receive per diem of the teacher pay. Here, after 60
    days substitutes get a per diem of 65% of the base pay salary.
    When were you in Iowa? In the 90's? Get over it! Find some
    positive aspect in your life, focus on that, and be happy.
