Re: moving to leavenworth kansas

    Hi Veronica,
    I live in Leavenworth, but I teach in Kansas City, KS. You
    would be on step two of the pay scale and would make around
    40000 in the public schools, and 35000 in the private schools.
    I do not know what the salaries are like in Leavenworth or
    Lansing as I have always worked in KCK. I would imagine that
    Fort Leavenworth salaries would be slightly higher, but that is
    just my hunch, I definitely could be wrong. You have many
    choices of districts around here. Good luck with your move.
    If you'd like, email me when you get to Leavenworth. I'd be
    happy to help you out in anyway I can. Lori
