Being a C-MITES teacher is personally rewarding and professionally challenging. Most of the students in C-MITES classes have been identified as academically talented and want to be there. Veteran C-MITES teachers find the time very rewarding; students are so thrilled to have a teacher challenge them and really make them think. Teachers are paid $1,000.00 per summer course taught (including time spent training and completing the necessary paperwork). The teacher salary for weekend workshops is $110.00 per 3-hour class. Classes of 10 or more will have a teaching assistant.
