I recently had a baby and found it to have insurance ( HMO ) through my neighborhood , it would cost me $ 432/check to cover Employee + Child (24 checks / year ) . However, if I was out of work , then it would cost me $ 10 a month . I spend about $ 1,000 / year on school supplies , educational materials , manuals and even copy paper . I offer free tutorials . I go to work at 6:30 am and leave around 5:30 pm . I think much of my own work at home because textbooks are poor . I have an average car , I have to pay $ 600 a month in child care and I have to budget carefully . Again, if I was out of work , daycare cost $ 35 a month . I'm still paying college loans. I've been teaching for seven years and I love my job and if it were not for the students , I would have left after my first year . For those of you who think that teaching is easier , working with a teacher for 1 week. I think it must be some kind of compensation for the lack of our salary . Many of us are taught that our heart is in it , but it can be difficult .
