What is the appropriate pay to ask for?
I'm going to be applying at a few preschools as an infant/toddler teacher. I make $11.50 an hour currently at my job and wonder what I should ask for when applying. I will be STARS certified, which is a program they are looking for, and have done some nannying in the past. I currently also work at a Sunday school where I make $10.50 an hour.

Try salary.com. It should have your position listed and give you a median pay range. With your experience, you could probably ask for above the median. Plus, you could print out your results and bring it to your interview as a visual aid/resource for your salary request.

you should ask for something around the middle of those two. then it is not a total shocker of you not having any money if you offer way less. around $11 would probably be reasonable

Where are you located. We have an opening at our preschool (www.hillpreschool.org) and could probably match what you are asking for. Are you located in Washington, DC or DC metro area?
