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.

I read about a stat that said 50% of teachers leave the field within five years.., if I weren’t retired military, I don’t think I’d be teaching- even though I love History and teaching. Most have no concept of the stresses and frustrations - insurance costs among them, are.

I’m so glad Facebook doesn’t have a “Who’s Viewed My Profile” feature, otherwise my sense of who is interested in me would be as embarrassingly warped as it is on LinkedIn.

Tips for suiting up before grocery shopping: 1) Speedo cap to minimize hair exposure. 2) Goggles to prevent eye exposure. 3) Plug up every other facial orifice (ears, nose) to minimize virus entry.

How do you find out what’s out there, to know specifically how an MBA will help you achieve your career goals? I’ve been in consulting for a year and liked it so far, but still don’t know what I want to do next or long-term. I want to go to b school because it’ll open up opportunities for me, but I don’t know what exactly I want to do yet. However it seems that in your MBA app, you have to know what you want to do...so how do I find out what that is?

NY leading the nation, as usual. It feels good to be the best. I do feel bad for the residents of all these red states that ignored what we learned. Your residents are paying for it now. Please wear a mask. Thanks, y'all.

I have a modeling test on Wednesday with a solar farm developer. On the phone interview that proceeded this, the CFO mentioned that these pro forma solar farm models are more nuanced than most. He mentioned bonus depreciation and tax credits among other things. Are there any good resources that I can use to learn about solar farm/renewable energy modeling? Also any general tips or things I should be aware of. If anyone could share a model too that would be awesome! Thanks for the help.
