A1 are you me? Was supposed to get it last year, bullshit politics happen and don't get it, was made promises for this year, with potential for mid year (but that's out of the window now) and I reallyyy don't want to stay until EOY to find out .


Just tell your new employer that your salary is your promoted salary. #rollthedice


Considering the same dilemma, myself. Been assured a promotion this year (lord knows how that pans out with the new system), but not exactly wanting to wait until EOY, since I'm doubting midyear promotions are really happening.


Haha I'm an experienced hire from early last year (something like 38 MAL now), got sig above but wasn't around long enough. Left a manager role at small company for consultant here, been operating as a manager since my start. Started sending out feelers recently, passively looking. I do love the company and can do well here, but also afraid of being pigeonholed in my practice.

Definitely jumping ship after promotion.

Hello everyone!

I’ve been teaching in private school for about four years, while juggling anywhere from 1-3 jobs on the side.

I am going through the interview process with KIPP for an elementary teaching position and was hoping for some insight into the pros/cons working there.

The pay increase from my private school salary would be jaw dropping and help me to provide a better life for my child.

Thanks in advance!

Congrats to everyone who got promoted!
