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 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 ( and could probably match what you are asking for. Are you located in Washington, DC or DC metro area?
