Bummer

I'm paid less than the average California teacher:

The average teacher salary last year was $66,995, an increase of 1.8 percent from 2008, according to new state figures. Districts laying off less-experienced, lower-paid teachers accounted for almost all of that increase -- cumulative school payroll in California was flat from 2008 to 2009. Teacher pay varies widely by district.


Clearly the taxpayers are getting a bargain with me!

You are underpaid.
I thought that High School teachers made a little bit more.

Not in your state, but I'm less than my state's average.
