I’ve had two former students — on two separate occasions — recently ask me about my move to a new school next fall:
“Are you getting paid more over there?”
And that’s cute. =)
Because if you’re a teacher and/or know how teacher pay scales work, you understand: That’s not the way it works.
But that’s the funny thing.
The reason that question even gets asked is because that sort of thinking — that a horizontal move elsewhere somehow equates to a bump in salary — actually makes sense almost everywhere else in the “real world”.
