The kids and I went to my new employer's District Office to drop off a bunch of paperwork. Already, there are some pretty major perks to working for ISD 748.
1) Family insurance will cost me $80/month. This is with a $3500 deductible, and the district puts $3500 in an HSA account to cover the cost of the premium. Comparing this to insurance in Milaca - which families pay close to $1000/month (seriously), and have a deductible that is double.
2) I received a teacher issued laptop AND iPad (promising to use it responsibly, of course.)
3) I went to work twice today, and brought the kids each time. While I worked, they played on the "Super Greatest American Ninja Training Ground" playground.
4) Total commute time - for TWO round trips - a total of 7 minutes. This maybe should be number one...
