Teacher Salaries

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Haskvitz

After five or more years of university, a well-paid position as a teacher is deserved. With this in mind, Reach Every Child has assembled the most current information concerning salaries, cost of living, and jobs available. However, due to the time it takes to collect and publish such data, most of these figures are at least three years old. Thus it is best to use this information as a starting point.

You should note the states with the highest teacher pay also have the highest cost of living. Regardless of where you work, with rising living costs, it is also a good idea to begin retirement planning. And this might be a good place to start: Horace Mann

The following sites deal with the latest teacher salary information, where to find jobs, scholarships, grants and a cost-of-living comparison by state. I have placed the rest of the information on this site:

http://www.reacheverychild.com/feature/salaries.html

It contains the following topics: Cost of living by state, education job scales, teachers pay in other countries, elementary teacher job pay, pay by state, taxes by state, salary trends and more. All free.
