Re: Teachers, $?

Upstate NY with masters is in the mid to high $40K, depending on district. Highest inner city is almost $50k (amazing - I started in the same district 12 years ago and only made $32k...)

Re: Teachers, $?

So cal - 43k starting....10 years later roughly 70k.
Then there are opportunitites for extra pay on occasion from coaching sports (few k), detention, saturday school, library supervision, substitute teacher during your prep period, all for around 20/hr.

I taught in a catholic school in Ohio for $15K. This was about 6 yrs ago. The public schools in the same area pay around $30K I think.

That's interesting, I assumed teachers at private schools would make more.

They make far less. But the there are other benefits that make up for it for those who choose that route... Free/reduced tuition, teaching your faith, more involved parents, a different kind of leadership, smaller classes, etc.

Mid 40's when maxed out with units. A master's adds 2.5K more a year. 13 years ago I signed my contract at 29K.....lots of time and pay raises later and here I am.

My dh started higher but his high end is lower than mine.

We are in California.

I think it depends on what kind of private school also. The school my mother works at now is an exclusive college prep school and they get paid more than private schools. The teachers mostly have at least a masters degree so that could play a factor at well.

Seattle area...I just looked it up hit my district. BA is 33k, masters adds about 7k a year. With all the extra hours (offered to everyone, not much more you can do at the elementary level which is where I am, you can make up to 39k if you use all your extra hours. For us, benefits for yourself are fully covered ( you can choose any insurance plan and not pay out if pocket), but will be paying out if pocket monthly premiums if you have a spouse or children on your medical benefits.

I think it depends on the school. The very expensive private schools here pay well. I know someone who was making 70k with a masters in their first year. He would have made about 50k -ish in a public school (if he could have gotten a job which is much harder because of union seniority)

Public school teachers have benefits, pensions and union contracts that private schools don't so they often pay more.
