We just moved to this city in Ohio ( from a small country town where things were cheap) .... This city isnt actually a huge place, there are alot of places ( stores, restraunts, buisnesses, etc) ...but it isnt even on a regular map ( like bigger cities usually are) .....
So, we decided that we want our kids to be homeschool... I know that I am not really capable of doing that and we are able to hire a "home teacher" .... Right now ( well in Sept. ) it will just be my daughter, she will be 5 then but at a 1st grade level ... We have a classroom set up, and i plan on doing field trips ( I can take her myself or the teacher can come along too ) .... so it is basically just "classroom duties"
So I was wondering what would be a fair pay for just my one child ( i will pay more when my son is older and starts) .... I was thinking like $2200/ month ??

Will you be hiring a certified teacher? If so, here is something to think about. In Ohio, the starting pay for a brand new, just graduated teacher is $33,671. So, if you hired a teacher for 9 months out of the year, and paid her $2,200/month, then she would only be making a little less than $20,000 a year. Will you be offering her health insurance, paid vacations, sick days, etc? Will the hours be full time like 8 am- 3 pm or will you only have her for certain days or for 3-4 hours each day? I am sure that you may be able to find someone to do this, but I honestly don't think they would stick around long, unless they were only looking for something like this where they get to work one on one with a child or two and have the flexibility of working for you rather than at a school system.

Dancer, show me ONE Board of Education that says that. You won't find one for public school that says that. Not that it isn't true, but no public school board of education will admit that.
