Are you interested in making more money teaching? Consider working with a staffing agency! AB Staffing specializes in placing education professionals in jobs and at salaries they love. We do this by taking on the task of working with districts to get the best compensation plans for our educators.
You don’t know what you can get unless you ask for it. Whether it’s an increased salary, classroom supply reimbursement, or a customized benefits package, our team is here to guide you through the process.
Use your negotiating power.
Stop taking what the school district offers and use your negotiating power. Just as in corporate America, our teachers deserve the right to ask for higher pay. Working with your Education Specialist, we will find out what means the most to you. For many teachers, they love what they do but wish they could be paid more. Take the stress out of contract negotiations and let our team work on your behalf to get you what you desire and deserve.
Build your own retirement fund.
Many teacher retirement plans have a required percentage for savings. When you work through an agency, you don’t have a mandatory 11% savings like other Arizona teachers, you have the flexibility to save as much or as little as you want. That means you can take some of what would have been required to invest in a teachers’ retirement plan and invest it elsewhere. Work with your financial advisor to determine a strategy that meets your needs now and in the future.
Create your own benefits package.
Ask for what you need instead of accepting what they offer. Districts often put benefit packages together that suit the needs of the majority but are not for everyone. Some educators have medical insurance through their spouses and don’t need coverage. That’s one less expense; negotiate a higher salary instead. Ask for more PTO or whatever else is important to you. Our team works to get our educators what they need from a teaching job.
Get classroom reimbursement
Many teachers in Arizona and across the country are spending their own money to fund classroom supplies. Others are pushing supply costs to the parents when in reality, the district should be bearing the cost. When negotiating your educator contract through an agency, ask for classroom supply reimbursement as part of your benefits package.
AB Staffing is currently offering a $100 per month classroom supply reimbursement.
