    Well...
    By Teacher in Hawaii

    I am a sped teacher in Hawaii. We went on strike last year and I think with my raise (that I haven't seen yet) I will be making about 30,000/year.

    BUT because they treat us like crap there is a real shortage of sped teachers so the state has contracted with a company called the Colombus Group who is bringing Sped teachers to Hawaii. I have heard that the state is paying the group 100,000/year per teacher- I don't know how much the teachers actually get but I'm sure they get more than me. I am thinking of moving to the mainland for the summer and applying with the group (they won't hire anyone living in Hawaii).

    So it isn't really an urban legend- only our state's stupidity.
