Starting Salary for Teachers
Teaching is one of the noblest professions there is. Also, it’s quite competitive as well, not to forget equally satisfying in all measures, because you get to churn out wisdom and knowledge to the future generations of every country.
Since it’s such a noble profession, the salary too should be equally lucrative, if not better. However, what is to be kept in mind is that the wages of a teacher usually depends on which grade he teaches, which state and also whether it is a private or public school/college/university. Sometimes the subject matters too.
The salary of a teacher will vary based on experience, curriculum, location of the school, and such other factors as the school may deem fit.
The average salary of a high school teacher is roughly around $4000 per annum (this amount may vary based on the factors already mentioned above). However, the good thing is, there is a steady pay growth as well, so that is one thing that might provide a mental satisfaction as well.
The state plays a significant factor in deciding the amount of money a teacher starts off earning because of the overall infrastructure of the school and grants which might come in. Of course, credibility plays a strong point too.
However, keep in mind that the estimates given above are rough sketches and may vary considerably based on certain key factors – as has been mentioned.
Getting a raise in salary is one of the best gifts you can give to a teacher, so schools, what are you waiting for?
