Teacher Wellbeing & Self Care

2015 $85/month towards health ins. 2019 $622/month. It’s sad that in a profession that requires a college education our take home decreases over time. Thanks NJ. Can’t wait to find a new career!!!

So sorry you’re dealing with such unfair treatment in your state. You deserve a career that adds as much to your life as you give to it. I hope you find something way better ASAP!

I’ve watched a lot of posts and comments about salaries and teachers struggling. There are posts asking what others do part time. There are some saying they can’t afford to teach based on healthcare increases. I work with other educators part time. Some are also administrators. We are doing a live zoom call this Thursday October 24th @ 8pm EST. This will give your an idea what we do part time and if it’s something you’d like to do with us. If you’d like the link please inbox me so you know who I am. Or you can also email me wellnessteacher1012@gmail.com

Last year I worked 60%. My health insurance was $1400 a month. We were in quite a bind, due to pre-existing conditions. If I had been working full time, it would have still been close to 800. It is a contract negotiations thing. Here in California, you can push for salary increase, or more allocation to health. In the long run, you don't get enough salary increase to make up for the health care. Those that have a spouse that covers their insurance, generally outvoted those that don't.

Obamacare did that...I have a 600+ premium every month plus copays. I feel like we were better off financially when I didnt work full time.
