    After 23 years of teaching in private schools I am making approximately $3,000.00 more than the starting salary of a CT teacher (the state where I work) The tuition at the school where I work is $28,000 a year(it is a boarding school). There are 289 students attending, very few with scholarships. I love my job, but have to seriously wonder if I am being fiscally responsible to my family - I have less money to put toward my children's college, I will retire with less money, I may need the support of my children if I live to be quite elderly. Sooo....I am looking for employment elsewhere.Until the private schools are willing to take a serious look at their salaries experienced teachers will continue to leave.
