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...

Alabama | Alaska | Arizona | Arkansas | California | Colorado | Connecticut | Delaware | District of Columbia | Florida | Georgia | Hawaii | Idaho | Illinois | Indiana | Iowa | Kansas | Kentucky | Louisiana | Maine | Maryland | Massachusetts | Michigan | Minnesota | Mississippi | Missouri | Montana | Nebraska | Nevada | New Hampshire | New Jersey | New Mexico | New York | North Carolina | North Dakota | Ohio | Oklahoma | Oregon | Pennsylvania | Rhode Island | South Carolina | South Dakota | Tennessee | Texas | Utah | Vermont | Virginia | Washington | West Virginia | Wisconsin | Wyoming |

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.
