What is the average teacher salary in each state?
Now that is a great question and also a hard question. There is a lot more to making great money as a teacher than just finding the state with the highest average teacher salary.
I have composed a summary page for each state with lots of helpful information to help you make decisions.
Please click on the state below for the one page summary...
- District of Columbia
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- New York
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
Here is what each page has...
Salary Range; this shows the range from a beginning teacher to the most experienced.
Average Teacher Salary; this is the average for the state.
Average Beginning Teacher Salary; shows where a teacher would start in this state.
Median houshold income; I included this to let you know where you fit in with the how much other people make.
Median house price; gives you an idea of how much it would cost to buy a house in the state.
Since each state can have dramatic changes from city to city I have included on each page a link to a cost of living calculator that will show you specifically how far your money with go in a particular city.
I then write a summary of each state about what you can expect as a teacher in that state.
I finish off each page with a list of websites of where I got the information for the page and other helpful links.
