I said for Kindergarten. You link has no pay lister for K. She started at $50 back then. Moved up to $75 by about the mid 80's. She had a Masters. Masters got more because K was considered crucial.That's why she got so much. Anyhow, that's what I was told when my eyeballs popped out at her salary. Your link is 2010. The other pay scale matches what I said. My family's friend made over $60 teaching High School in the 90's.
I never said all teachers make that kind of money either. Not everybody has a high income in that area and the cost of living was not as high when she started.
I don't see any blanket statement. I said an eastern metro city for two people. Can you read? Here is what I posted. It may be a lot for that area but it's still part-time according to that teacher. If another area is cheaper to live in, then the pay would be lower to match. So, even if it was part-time it would cost less to live.
I've a friend who is a teacher in a eastern metropolitan city and he says " It's the best paid part-time job ever." He has 8 kids too. I've an in-law who was paid $75 for K in Boston in the mid 80's even.
Bill Belichick learned to film signals of opponents from the former Chiefs, and Charger's coach Schottenheimer. Others like Edwards, Johnson and Cowher did too. They learned from the CHEATS and CHEATERS who still couldn't win.
