Chief cook and bottle washer Rubinstein

Looks like the media didn’t qute get the whole story about teachers earning $100,000 or more.

And you thought all teachers were underpaid.

Before we proceed any further, I need to clarify that I personally have no problem whatsoever with a teacher earning these pay rates as long as the job is legitimate and they got to that level by achievement rather than having “friends” in the right places.

With that said, let’s continue..

From the district database of employees of this past year ending last month, there were a total of 77 teachers earning over $100,000.

The Sun Sentinel reported only 59.

But according to the Florida DOE teacher certification lookup 39, or just over half of those teachers are not certified to teach anything.

Two of the teachers highlighted in the Sun Sentinel article, Thomas Hindson and Denise Vajanc are among those the DOE lookup currently reports as uncertified.

Reynolds Hedland, the teacher that was first profiled, is also reported as uncertified.

Maybe there’s good reason, maybe there isn’t.

But the district needs to do some housecleaning one way or another.

Here’s the list.

Oh, and one more thing…

The certification lookup still says that perennial School Board candidate Stewart Websterhas no teacher certification.

So much for honesty and ethics…
