hi

I'm thinking about looking for work in an IEP attached to either a community college or a university.

What is the approx salary range? Where is the best place to look for these types of jobs?

Many thanks!

While you have probably already discovered the huge range of salaries depending on employer and geography, please allow me to share three suggestions for other novice IEP teachers.

1. Salaries remain insufficient and far lower than they should be in far too many situations. Part-time, seasonal work is often the norm. Working fulltime in the summer is far easier than working fulltime in the fall.
2. Community Colleges and universities pay far better, but usually IEP programs are private, for-profit groups affiliated with the community colleges and universities and use a separate pay scale. A lower pay scale.
3. TESOL - and the state organizations linked to TESOL such as CATESOL - provide excellent resources. Attending regional and state conferences is an excellent way to collect salary information, collect job leads, and sometimes job offers. Invest your nickels and join your local branch.
4. Conduct informational interviews. Salaries in Los Angeles and Long Beach at the community college and university IEP programs range from $20 per hour to $50 per hour. Why don't you interview some teachers in your area and find out more from the local experts?
5. Check out - as you know - relevant websites. Don't forget the networking potential of LinkedIn too.

Good luck. This "deep recession" has made teaching in IEP programs more difficult - at least in California. Teaching abroad, however, continues to provide many attrative options.
