AUS Adjunct Faculty Kate Sipe Featured in KOMO News

AUS adjunct faculty and K-12 teacher Kate Sipe was recently featured in a KOMO News story about K-12 teacher activists advocating for equitable working conditions. She commented on how local school districts offer teachers different rates of pay.

Citing her own story as an example, Sipe explained that although she taught in Seattle public schools for 14 years, switching to working in the Edmonds School District this year came gave her a $25,000 increase in annual pay. As Sipe told KOMO News, “The bump that I just received by coming to Edmonds is going to be $495,000 before taxes over 15 years,” adding, “And that is going to send my kids to college, it’s going to allow family vacations. It’s a gamechanger.”
