Hey Everyone,

I have been offered an interview at Ikego Elementary School and am very excited about it but have a few questions. Does anyone have experience there? Also, I was trying to figure out what the pay would be and if they have a cost of living allowance. I have been teaching 22 years in washington state and have a masters plus 45 credits.

Thank you!
