If you are a teacher, you already know this and it will come as no surprise. However, the public should know it too AND they should be doing something about it. For what is arguably the most important job in America (educating the young/future generations), why isn’t there more emphasis on increasing the pay scales for teachers?
I am one of the ever increasing numbers that has a part-time job (driving instructor & licensing tester) to help meet the budget each month. During the school year I average about 20-25 hours a month and during the summer that increases to 30-35 hours a month.

Pay for veteran teachers ‘painfully low’ in states like Colorado, where truckers earn more — new report – The Washington Post.
If you are a teacher, do you have a part-time job, what is it, and how many hours a month do you work?
