High Paying Teaching Jobs

For those willing and able to move, a connection to an organization I belong to made me aware of Greenwich CT schools. They have a few openings, but most importantly, take a look at their salary schedule for last year. Some of you who are trying so hard to get $35,000 and under teaching jobs should seriously consider a move to a place that starts their B.A. teachers in the 40s. Plus, in CT, you are near to top universities and major city centers. I am not from CT, but have taught /do teach in communities that pay their teachers a realistic living salary and have also experienced what it is like to move for a job without friends or family present in the area. Let me know if this type of job posting awareness is useful, otherwise I won't post.

What a great salary! I'd be making about $20K more than I am here!

I'll have to look up the cost of homes and see how they compare.


OMG - I just looked up homes there - the cheapest was $629,000 for 1129 sq. ft.!!!! No wonder they pay the teachers so much! Whew!

I live in CT and have sent my packet to Greenwich and have never heard a word. Yes, Greenwich is one of the most expensive towns in CT..all the famous people live there! From what I know, the salaries in CT match the cost of living, so don't pack your bags just yet. CT is tight all over with elem. job openings..I've been looking for 5 years now...

Annie- thanks for the details. That's what people say about some of the areas in which I've worked. Don't let a "rich or snooty neighborhood" intimidate you. I come from a low-middle-class family and state schools, but I have always applied to and taught in such systems (applying when they're building a new school helps). You'd be surprised at how affordable a nice apt. or condo would be just outside the area, a short commute. I'm not saying that they're perfect, but it sure is good to have resources, prof. dev. and a nice salary, for a teacher that is...

For those of you who think a move to CT would solve your problems - good luck! I have been searching in CT for 4+ years and it's all WHO you know. I live in the CT Valley (New Haven County) area - unfortunately Greenwich is way too far for me to drive my beat-up old truck. I've lived in CT since I was 4 years old.

I am from Fairfield County, CT, and I have lived here since I was 4. Jobs in this area are SO difficult to get because it's such a rich area, the schools are so good, the pay is good, and everyone wants to work here. The principals are really picky and only want the very best, most experienced teachers, so it's even harder to get even an interview here unless you are experienced. I know people who are having problems getting a job down here, I consider myself very lucky that I did.

Our schools start at 42,400 for a zero experience teacher with a BA and go up in steps from there. While that sounds grand, cost of living is crazy here as well. But if you're willing to be creative a bit or have family it's a nice place to be. We're terribly diverse and I love it -- urban, really suburban, slightly removed from the city (I live in the great beyond....beyond metro!) We have great programs and hire thousands of teachers in my county each year.

Greenwich's salary is comparable to the one I just accepted in another district in Fairfield Co. I had a screening interview w/ Greenwich (SPED). They are completely integrated (the school I came from is a special education day school). Fairfield Co. pays well and, you can buy/rent in Stratford or Milford for a reasonable amount of money (in relation to your salary). From what I understand, elementary positions are hard to come by here in CT... SPED is a little more open.

I live in the Houston (Texas) area and when I was applying for jobs last summer there were about 10 school districts surrounding Houston that each starts new teachers, with a bachelors degree, at around $42,000. Not too shabby if you ask me.

I live in Houston as well. The previous poster is correct, and the cost of living in Houston is well below what you will find in Connecticut. I would never dream of paying $629,000 for an 1100 sq. ft. home. My home costs us $66,700 at the same amt of square footage.
For that amount of money in Texas (pick a city) you would be living large.
The salary, however, is considerably smaller if you decided to live in the country. Most teachers that are certified in a critical shortage area (bilingual, ESL, special ed, math, science, ss) usually get a stipend in HISD.

North west AR. Specifically Fayetteville, Springdale, Bentonville (home of Wal-Mart), and Rogers all start teachers out at around 42,000 with a bachelors. SpEd teachers make a LOT here. The cost of living, compared to a lot of places, is not very high. AR is a Praxis state. Switching your license/certification is not difficult.

If you want to make money you have to go overseas, 30K and 30K, tax free makes a big difference!

Or Canada. My school board in Alberta starts off at $52 520 for a 4-year Education Degree, and caps out at $94 600 for 10 years experience plus another degree. Hard to compare cost of living, but the average family home would be somewhere in the $375-400 000 range. Not sure how well U.S. degrees transfer.

Higher teacher salary

Where specifically over seas? I am in GA right now. The cost of living (COL) compared to the pay is unreasonable. I am looking for a good school system that supports its teachers who want to teach children to learn and be responsible people. I have a family. So, the schools have to be great for me to work in and my children to attend school. Where is a great place to teach and live comfortably? Especially in comparison to reasonable COL.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.
