    I live in the USA and am a public school speech-language pathologist (special education) with a master’s degree plus 40 extra credits. I make roughly $75K USD after 30+ years of experience. My caseload numbers for the last two years averaged out at 47 students. Paid contracted work week is 40 hours, less 30 minute “duty free” lunch, and mandatory meetings and trainings before and after those hours that we are not compensated for.
