Celebrating 15 Years
“Adult Foster Care of
the North Shore has
provided me with a very
fulfilling experience. To
contribute to someone
else’s life, while receiving
compensation, has been
very rewarding. I am
grateful to help people
who are less fortunate.”
lot of the sicknesses I get, I get
from them [the students]. And
bereavement? Why shouldn’t
I get a day of pay?
Q:
What’s the most reward-
ing part about being a substi-
tute teacher in Saugus?
A:
I was going to get my
teaching degree. I like the
kids. They make me laugh.
Theymake you think different-
ly sometimes. You do some-
thing that you’ve done for a
long time, and you think you
know what you’re doing, and
they show you that you didn’t
know all the ways to do some-
thing – and they give you a
fresh perspective. I love kids’
art. It’s pure. There’s nothing
to read into it.
Q:
Anything else that you
would like to share?
A:
It’s a good job. I don’t
want anyone to think that I
don’t love my job. But finan-
cially, it’s not good. I had to cut
back my days, which makes
me sad.
Q:
And your expectations
and hopes are that they
[school officials] would at
least pay the minimum wage
of Massachusetts?
A:
Yes, and think about the
earned sick time. If people in
Burger King can get earned
sick time, why shouldn’t I?
Why shouldn’t the substitutes
get treated the way other peo-
ple like to be treated?

more than 19.5 hours aweek.“If
we hire at 19.5 hours, there are
no benefits attached … I have
always posted at 19.5 [hours],”
DeRuosi said.
DiVirgilio wanted to know
howmanypart-timeemployees

DeRuosi wasn’t able to provide
that number, but said his staff
would provide that and other
information requested by the
Finance Committee.
