voters, please support your loyal teachers
Let me tell
you about myself and why I remain a loyal teacher at Prospect Mountain
High School. In 2001 I received a BS in Mechanical Engineering from UNH,
worked for a year in industry and converted to become a certified
mathematics and physics teacher. PMHS was my first choice. Later, I
obtained a Master’s Degree in Education from Plymouth State and was able
to move to track 3 on the existing salary schedule. After six years of
working I was now on step 6 and track 3. This is where I still remain
five years later. In 2009, the financial challenges of the nation
trickled down to our towns and all teachers at PMHS were “frozen” on
to be loyal to PMHS because of the great community that exists here. I
provide mentoring to students through the Outing Club and the award
winning Robotics Team. I shifted the physics curriculum by developing a
highly successful Advanced Placement Curriculum as well as a physics
class geared toward technical application. I am just one of the many
teachers at Prospect Mountain High School who puts their heart and soul
into the education of Alton and Barnstead students.
have 11 years of experience but am paid as if I have 6. A similar
teacher from another district hired at PMHS this year, would be placed
on their appropriate track and step, 5 pay grades above where I am.
There are 17 other teachers at PMHS in the same situation. The contract
that has been negotiated and will be voted on March 21st will gradually,
over the course of two years, adjust our steps to put us just one step
behind our true experience level. I ask that you vote in favor. Thank
you for your continued support.
