Yes this sounds amazing. Are other places as generous as NY? (NJ)

What kinds of jobs other than speech therapist are available?

Thanks for your time.

Even within NY things vary greatly. Within NYC, all schools are part of the NYC Department of Education. Outside of NYC, generally each county is divided into it's own district, with each district being a separate entity. I believe the same is true in NJ. Some places may even be better off than NYC DOE, but my understanding is that's not the case.

As far as what types of jobs they have:

Current Hiring Needs and Guidelines
The NYCDOE hired more than 5,000 new teachers to NYC public schools for the 2013-14 school year. At the present time, public schools in NYC may hire external teachers (teachers not currently employed by the NYCDOE) in the following subject areas:

Special Education
Speech
English as a Second Language
General Science (Middle School)
Earth Science

In addition to teachers, the Department of Education employs a wide variety of professionals and para-professionals in our schools to help children learn and grow in a safe environment. Read more about these titles, how to apply, and our current needs in the following areas:

Substitute Teachers
Paraprofessionals
Pupil Personnel Services: Attendance Teachers, Counselors, Social Workers, and School Psychologists
Occupational and Physical Therapists
Speech Improvement / Speech and Language Pathology / SLP (Medicaid Speech Services)
Audiologists
School Secretaries, Lab Specialists, and other positions

Teachers and speech therapists are definitely in the same category for salary and benefits, but I know at least some of these other categories are not (occupational therapists). That's not to say those jobs are any worse off, I just don't know the details.

Ans this is why it eats me up when ppl say that teachers are underpaid. I'm not saying it's an easy job but for the amount of work and education required, it can be a pretty sweet gig.

True, I wasn't referring to religious schools.
