Teacher Salaries - You need to know everything...

Teachers, you love to teach, but hate how little you are paid. This website can show you what you can do to earn more doing what you love. Welcome to the website centered around the world of the teacher's salaries.

According to a 2006 study done by the National Education Association, 50% of teachers leave the profession within five years because of poor working conditions and low salaries. Yet, according to the 2006 General Social Survey, teaching ranks among the Top 10 most gratifying jobs with 69% of teachers reporting they were very satisfied with their jobs. A low salary should not be the reason to stop molding young minds and influencing lives for the betterment of our society.

This is a website for teachers made by a teacher who became frustrated with the lack of organized information about teacher's salaries. He started off by doing a summary, state by state, of what it is like to teach in each state. He also included the facts and figures when it comes to the money. Just because a state might have the one of the highest teacher salaries, it doesn't mean that you can afford to live there. So he makes sure to include on each summary the information you will need about living and working in that state as a teacher.
