I don't believe in tenure but I have it. You are now looking at the new and improved Miss Belnap with tenure and Level II licensure! It means they cannot fire me unless I look at naughty things at school or hurt kids. It also means I make $1,015.00 more per year. Not that much at all when you spread that out in 12 months of pay checks but oh well. Considering that I had to pay over $300.00 to re-license, I think the pay increase is even less significant. Can you believe I am going to start my 5th year teaching this August?! That just makes me feel so far removed from college. Sad. I loved BYU. It sure was easier than real life, full-time work.
