In my opinion paraprofessional with a bachelor degree with over5- 10 years experience at least should make $48,000-50,000 . New. Teachers are receiving almost close to 65000 or more starting why do we have to be a the bottom.
The pay as a paraprofessional is to low to live in nyc. I suggest others to find a skill or a trade that’s in demand. That increases your income to want better and to stay a float.
I am able to retire next summer (07-18) with benefits and a pension.
