Salaries

PayScale.  PayScale gives you an estimate or approximation of what a job might pay. Generally, you already know what a job might pay, but this site confirms that figure for you.  The one feature that I do like about is it that presents a career path around the kind of job you’re looking for, so that you can see clearly what options you might have after entry-level positions.  Besides a career path, the site also offers an education path, like what degrees and courses you should consider if you want to move up in pay and in career position.  It’s definitely worth a look.

This would have been helpful to me when I first got into teaching.  Though I had friends who were administrators, that kind of work–in other words, lying to my staff and using “the children,” “the parents,” and “the community”– as my fodder, no, I could not do that.
