What is the state with be pay for a highschool teacher/coach starting off?
answers you, none who do answer would have a clue. I have
a good friend who was a 6th and 5th grade teacher until she
retired recently. She made good money in the state of Calif.
She chose that state to teach, because it paid more than in
other states she checked into. She never said how much she
was paid. But she was able to support herself well and later
she even bought herself a home.
She also took summer classes to learn Spanish, as knowing how to speak with Mexican children was a plus and
the school district she worked for, paid her extra for that
ability. She continued to take advanced classes during the
summer in Spanish, and she also made several trips down
to Mexico to learn more about the people. All of these things
contributed to her getting higher pay than what other teachers
in her school were earning. It was like getting extra credit for
So there is no flat rate a teacher or coach would make. It
depends on the schools’ budget and it varies from city to
city and state to state. You’ll have to do some major research
to find a definate quote on earnings. Maybe your local librarian at the main library can show you some insight and
point you in the right direction.
In the meantime, pay more attention in English class so that
you know how to speak and write a sentence correctly.
I think Alaska pays pretty well too, but you’d have to live in Alaska.
My school in Michigan starts out over 41,000 for step 0 with just a Bachelor’s degree.
