Skip to comments.NJ Teacher who complained to Gov. Chris Christie she deserved $83k actually makes $86k

Well, it turns out that that very teacher that claimed to be unfairly compensated, and that she would love to make $83,000, actually gets a salary of $86,389. Plus healthcare. plus pension. In totality, it amounts to well over $100,000 per year.(Analysis from theblogprof)
If she can’t live on 87K plus bennies, maybe she can get a job down the shore over summer break....
I’d grant her request. $3k a year in savings adds up.
Jesus Wept! I know a full professor at a University that’s making that.
If she’s that dumb that she rants about her pay without knowing what she makes... I’d fire her. She’s clearly lacking critical thinking skills and not qualified to teach.
Otters are losing their jobs, paying for a portion of their benefits and still SHE CAN'T GET ENOUGH or think enough of herself. These are GREEDY, LAZY robots who should be FIRED. They are so entitled, it's ridiculous!
Not the sharpest tool in the shed.
i think she was just trying to “bear false witness”. Pretending to speak for the less fortunate
It takes a real moron to complain about making 86k a year for doing a part time job. Summers off, endless days off during the year. Sucks to be she.
Many of our elementary teachers are young and single, and either teach summer schools (pretty good pay), get summer jobs in resorts, or travel to Europe during the summer. They are off almost 2 solid months.
“i think she was just trying to bear false witness. Pretending to speak for the less fortunate”
Then she was being dishonest, not making it clear that’s what she was doing. Also grounds for dismissal in my book.
Plus summers off!
My two sons are teachers. While I’d like to say that they answered a “higher calling”, the biggest draw was summers off.
she think she’s is worth more.
My kids’ teachers are heroes! I do not begudge them a long long vacation for all they put up with!
Its just the ones like Rita who whine about how much they are worth that bug me. As Gov Christie said- if you want to make more money, do something else!
Another Union thug gets outed.
Pray for America
Ha! She probably would LIKE to make $83k after taxes.
Sorry, you live in NJ! Try moving to Alaska though, where $86k is actually $86k.
This stupid woman probably thinks she doesn’t make 83K because she doesn’t take that home with her.
These days some teachers might not realize that 86 is more than 83 without an answer book.
Rita Wilson is an idiot.
If she has her half of FICA and Medicare taken from her base and 15% withholding and no matching pension fund payments or healthcare payments, she takes home around 66K.
“These days some teachers might not realize that 86 is more than 83 without an answer book.”
Or 86 = 83 if you feel that is the right answer. Self esteem and all of that.
Sheesh, and some people wonder why we homeschool and don’t think that parents are qualified to teach their own children because they don’t have education degrees.
Figuring out that 86,000 is greater that 83,000 isn’t exactly rocket science.
That much money for 3/4’s year of work with vacation, sick days, paid holidays, and weekends and nights off guaranteed?
What a crybaby.
I’d love it if mr. mm made the equivalent amount of money per hour worked.
I’d love it if mr. mm made that much money NOW for a year’s worth of work.
She could always move to Texas, I think a masters degree in teaching might get you 48K a year
I work for a local gov't in NJ and have pension fund payments taken from my gross pay. I don't know about the teachers, though.
She must be a diversity queen, who can’t do math.
Slash her pay to meet her demands.
Greeks are paying up to $1700 per ounce buying British Sovereigns, while spot gold is $1208 as I am typing. I've got news for this educated beyond her native intelligence chick........your fat pension will be worthless in a few years, just like my social security checks will.
I don’t know either but I bet they do.
Poor woman probably thinks she only make around 60K a year.
I'M WITH YOU!
I mean, here they go into a profession that for years has been portrayed as sitting around with a bunch of angels eager to learn, aceing test , and just generally behaving in a manner that would surprise anyone who only sees out-of control kids at malls and elsewhere.
Suddenly they are thrust into a situation where the kids behave as though they are still at the mall, out-of-control, a school board that won't support the teachers, low pay, long hours, all things no one knew about.
AND they can't leave, once they start as teachers, everytime they begin thinking about doing something else, someone shows up and threatens them and their familes, forcing them back into the salvery known as education.
Tough, tough life, once it is chosen.
There ought to be a law that obligates society to let them know that it won't be all peaches and cream BEFORE they take that first job in purgatory.
What a crybaby! After 5 years at an innercity school in Dallas I was barely making $30,000 in the 90s! Sheesh! What an NEA PLANT!!!
Otters are losing their jobs? This is outrageous, who would be cruel enough to put a cute little otter out in the stream without a job.
Me too & with the benefits & retirement plan we would be able to stay in NJ instead of moving out.
What's that all about?
Hate to say it but reality is putting The Onion and Scrappleface out of business these days. Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish the two and knowing union tactics......
