Sorry if this is personal. Of course if you don't want to respond, no biggie!

I am doing some research for our educational union that I joined recently.

I am curious to know what state you live in, how many years experience and credits/degrees you have, salary and what your employees max out at. I'll start (obviously!).

WA state
25 years experience
Masters degree plus 90 extra credits (maxed out on the pay scale)
$70,000 base (can make up to 5k more if you work the extra days worked into our contract)

Thank you! 😊

NJ

30 years experience.

Masters plus 30 credits.

$111,000.

Sounds great, but after after taxes, pension (7.5 %), and health insurance ($13,000 a year), it's not real impressive.

CA 16th year step (even though I have taught for 31 years) B.A. plus 94 units $91,000 I think the salary schedule maxes out at about $125,000

I lost some years when I moved to a new district.

I retired May 2016.

Idaho

BA + 120 credits (maxed out on the pay scale. Masters was not required when I started and, at that time, online classes weren't available. A masters course would have meant living 4 hours from home to the nearest college - we couldn't afford that being newly married)

37 years of experience - taught in the same state the entire time

Retired at $50,000.

Our legislature has little regard for education and funding it. They don't get that one needs more than the beautiful vistas and amazing outdoor experiences to survive. Our saving grace is a fully funded state retirement, rated in the top 5 of the nation, that they cannot touch.

33 years experience with a Bachelors'
Top of scale at $65,000...part of that is longevity pay (I think we have 3 levels of that in 4 year increments then you just "top out" like me). For years now I've gotten about a $1000-$1200 raise a year, most of which gets eaten up by increases in health and dental insurance.

In New Mexico:

Level 1: Bachelors, first 3 years: $34K
Level 2: Bachelors, second 3 years to forever (if you don't have an Master's or NB cert):$42K
Level 3: Master's or NB cert: $52K

I get a small stipend for being TESOL certified, a big stipend if I have 1+ kids who qualify for ESL services, another stipend for being on SAT (the team handling referrals to SpEd) and, if I achieve this year, a bigass stipend for being NB certified.

I'll angle for any stipends they offer.

Colorado

8 years

MA

$49,000

My district has frozen our salaries many times since I began working there . Although I'm in my 8th year, I'm paid as a 4th year teacher. If we had gotten all of our step raises, I would be making about $56,000 per year.

My district offers no stipends or ways to earn extra money. In previous districts I did things like after school tutoring for extra pay, but nothing like that is offered here- not even summer school! We also don't get paid for committees or extra duties or anything like that, even when meetings are held outside contract hours.

$70,261 woo-hoo! this year. i teach in Boise, Idaho. Our district is the best, even though our state doesn't do much to fund education.

that is the max on our pay scale (Masters +30 credits)

this is my 25th year teaching, so i will also get a stipend of $1000!

i'm attaching our salary schedule...but i'm not sure how to explain it.

on the left side, the capital letters used to be years of service, but we had a few years when our salaries were frozen, so it doesn't exactly equate, but...

a current first year teacher makes double what i made my first year!

our state offered us a tiered license where we could become "master teachers" and earn $4,000 extra a year for 3 years....but we have to keep a portfolio and explain what we've done---i think there are 22 domains. we were told it would take at least 60 hours to compile all the information and the funding wasn't guaranteed and that it would be rigorous. so no one i know is planning on doing it.

Our insurance is awful and doesn't keep up with "raises" or "steps" so my family uses a medical bill-sharing plan instead of traditional insurance.

That's in DFW. We moved here so I could make that and DH could stay home with our boys. I can't find the salary schedule of my old rural district but I think I started at around $37,000.

We go from $37,000 for a new teacher with a BA/BS to $61,000 for a MA+30 and National Board with 30 years experience.

My DH is in a neighboring district, and we make almost exactly the same. However, some districts pay a lot differently than we do.

I have a Master's plus 90, National Boards, and about 19 years experience. I make just over 100K. We are looking at a new salary schedule in the next year or two, and we will see what happens. We have been told that no one will go backward.

$61,000. Masters plus. 13 years experience. I won't get a step increase for 3 more years. Just negotiated % increases.

Base is $32,500 and max is 68,000

I only pay $170/month for insurance (medical, dental and vision) for a family. This is a major benefit. We also typically get 1 or 2 insurance holidays where we don't have to pay any premiums that month. It has really encouraged people to be aware of medical care in a good way. Our deductible has increased from nothing and $10 copays to $2500 and $10.

We pay about $120/month for insurance (medical/dental/vision) no matter if you cover yourself, or yourself, spouse and 10 kids. It's great, but a little nuts, too. Depending on which plan you choose, there's no deductible and $20 copays.

(We also haven't had a cost of living increase in 2 years because we're working out of contract.)

The top of our scale is about $82,000 with a Doctorate. You could add another $1500 with National Board.

I just wanted to add that we get $3000 something the first year, then $5000 for the next nine years as our bonus in Washington. It used to be $5000 for each year so earning it was worth $50,000, which helped make up for the tedious hard work. I'm not sure who decides the payment amount, but if you are getting less, it is worth looking into and seeing if you can change it for your state or bargaining unit. If it is national, shouldn't we get the same amount? Does it count in your retirement? Another issue to bargain. None of us get paid enough for the wonderful work we do (and love!)

The discrepancy in salaries is ridiculous. When will teachers get paid what they are truly worth. It makes me sad.

I'm the same as Munchkins, pension and health insurance take out at least $15,000 a year.

My property taxes are over $10,000 a year.

My car insurance for 4 cars is $4,800
a year. (male teen driver)

The cost of living in my state is high.

Don't even get me started on the $13.00 toll to cross a bridge.

21 years MA + 30+
Maxed out on schedule although we no longer use the schedule. Raises are now tied to CPI. This year it was 1.26%

A little over $83,000

Thankful I accelerated my way to the MA lane on the schedule before Act 10.

Calif. . . 28 years in public school with a masters $90,000. We received a substantial raise 3 years ago however my health insurance went from free to $522 per month then. No raise, extra duty, or stipends available in sight. My house has devaluated considerably over the last 5-6 years and my house payment is 1,500 per month including very costly fire insurance. The cost of living is high and I just barely break even at the end of the month. The salary may seem high and the retirement benefits good but I was a single mom the entire life of my girls and now I am helping to support my mom who lives with me. It definitely is great supplement salary with two incomes but as a sole supporter in my state it's highly questionable.

Our district starting salary is $52,000-62,000 depending on masters

I have 15 years, masters degree-all the way over on schedule- and make $94,000 I will max out at 25 years with 104,000. This does not include afterschool classes I teach or other district opportunities that include stipends.

I teach in rural PA; this is my 19th year, and that is our final step. With a master's, I make $67,000 a year. With master's + 30, I could max out at around $75,000. I have very reasonable insurance for my family, a solid retirement plan, and dental insurance. I am disappointed that we do not have vision or orthodontic plans.

Many have complained that their states do not offer competitive salaries compared to other states. Comparing teacher salaries among states is like comparing apples to oranges. You can truly only compare salaries with districts neighboring to your own, in my opinion. I know that my $67,000 in PA stretches much farther than a higher salary in other states. A very nice 4-bedroom home in my community could be purchased for under $200,000. The taxes on my home are less than $4,000 a year. I am always amazed by the salaries of teachers in CA, but after vacationing there and stopping at a realtor for a realty catalog, I was SHELL-SHOCKED by the cost of homes there that don't nearly compare to the beautiful home I can afford here in PA. You would have to do some serious cost-of-living adjustments to truly compare what we make, I think!

$35,000 + District pays health insurance in Oklahoma.
My background is in nonprofit management. Teaching is way easier, but pays the same, if not better.

I'm in my 2nd year with only a Bachelor's, at $51, 994. I'm hoping to finish my Bachelor's +24 by the end of the year. If so, I'll be at $69,000.

We have been hoping to move because we have 3 kids and are bursting at the seems in our current home. A $300,000 home is affordable for us HOWEVER, in my area, monthly taxes are about $3000 a year per $100,000 value of your home. So the taxes are keeping us from moving
