Survey- I think this would be good information for all
What state are you teaching in ?
Years of experience ?
How much do you make?

Of course we all make a huge different in student lives

Me-
state- south Florida
experience- 11 yrs elementary
pay - 50,000

from Florida here - our governor wants to raise starting 1st year teacher pay to at least 47000- i guess the teacher shortage is an issue. I am in my 11th yr and barely make over that. I am happy for them but veteran teachers need a raise too. No mention of that.

I remember when Dade County had the first pay scale that went to 100k if you had a PhD. I didnt hit 50k till over 20 yrs in Bradford (North of Gainesville) and topped out at about 54k after 30 yrs and never went up much after that. I taught 40 yrs. Fla politicians have just about killed public schools in Fla.

Just stating your pay and area doesn't necessarily tell all that much because depending on the cost of living it could be not too bad to horrible.

Arizona/ 19th year/54,500 .... with Master's Degree

We got a 10% pay raise after the Red tor Ed walkout after Arizona increased funding for schools, and another 10% increase this year. So, I jumped almost $10,000 in the past 2 years.

State- Virginia (Northern DC area)
Year- 17 with Masters
Salary- 73000

I would actually be making about 15k more if I taught one county north but my 7 mile commute already takes 25-35 min so itís not worth the drive.

Also in South Florida, also 11 years in with an M.Ed, and also around $50,000... perhaps just a bit more. I was just talking about the governor's proposal and how disappointed I would be if the starting salary for someone with no experience was comparable to mine after teaching for as long as I have been with an advanced degree. Sad.

Like a previous poster mentioned, cost of living in your area makes a huge difference. I live in one of the highest cost of living areas in the state. For the mortgage we pay, a person would get a house twice the size of and newly built just a few towns away.

I teach in northern Florida

11 years as a high school teacher

WITH a Master's degree and the supplements as department head, technology specialist, and textbook manager, I make $45,000

A note on the proposed salary increase in Florida, to my understanding that salary is only applied to like 100,000 new teachers in specific districts and/or subjects depending on need (and there is no indication that current teachers will have their salaries adjusted accordingly).

-California
-15 years in February (my first job started mid year) but only 5 years counted on the pay scale since I did 10 years in pre-k and around here the pay scale only counts k-12 teaching experience.
-BA + 60 units which is the same tier as a master degree
-62,000 a year in a very high COL area (for reference a 1 bedroom apartment rents for 2000 a month and 4 bedroom house rents for 3200 a month and sells for an average of 500,000 and subsidized housing income cut off for a family of 2 is 52,000 a year)

I have to work a second job or multiple second jobs to make ends meet.

State: Southern NJ (rural)
Experience: 37 years
Pay: $81, 000 (Top of pay scale and haven't had a raise/won't get a raise)/No Longevity or Cost of Living :-(

This is before medical is taken out. Every year I bring home less than the previous year. It is ridiculous. I used to cover my family. When my husband passed, I switched to parent/child. Last year, my youngest son aged out so I switched to single, but it costs me more because the single rate is higher than the parent/child and it is based on your salary. So I am paying a lot more for my medical than another teacher who has the single plan, but has less years experience (base salary is less). Same insurance, but I pay more.

I've only worked in one district, so no losing money hopping districts and starting at the bottom of the ladder again.
I make $46,000. There is literally nowhere to go from here. I usually get a small cost of living raise, but I'm at the very last rung on the very last salary ladder.

Indiana 32 years 66k (Masters +15)

Our school raised only starting salaries for six years (from 28k-42k), so teachers with 5 years experience made the same as rookies. Now the salaries of teacher 1-10 years experience were raised by thousands, but anyone over that got nothing besides the paltry raise everyone got. COL is low here, but, but Indiana also has the lowest retirement multiplier for pensions (1.1).

The salaries look good in the CPS but try living in Chicago on what they make. Unless things have changed you have to live there to work there.
