Just what the title says, how much do teachers get paid?

Also, do any of you have any idea how much college professors get paid a year? I'm thinking about these as a career.

Also, when I go to college for it, will I spend more time learning to become a teacher, or learning about the subject I want to teach. (H.S. Algebra, or better yet number theory at a college).

Thanks.
What do we tell our children? Look before you leap. Stop and think. Don't judge a book by its cover. We believe that we are always better off gathering as much information as possible and spending as much time as possible in deliberation.

Not as bad as everyone thinks. Plus they get summers off. The school does remove a percentage of ever check though, so they can pay it back to you during the summer.

not enough for what they do, if you had to sit in a room for 8 periods a day with a bunch of rowdy, disrespectful, jackasses of kids for what they get paid, i would not be suprised if you commited suicide, they work alot harder than they get paid for.

ithink you're average middle-high school teacher gets paid around 50,000. Once they've gained some seniority and what not.

And i think college professors can make in the 6 figures.

I doubt anyone in the pit will know anything about this subject.

It depends on where you teach. In a rural area, you may not earn $30,000 in a year, but you can earn in the $50k range in an urban area. My mom was a teacher in a rural area until last year, and she had to take a second job in order to afford to support the family.

As far as professors, it all depends on whether you have tenure or not. Just know that aside from teaching you will also be expected to do research and academic papers. I can't give exact numbers, but it's not a large amount. Professors here at Mizzou don't really tell their salaries to everyone. It is better than a high school teacher will earn, though.

My, I'm impressed . No one here cares either, don't worry.

And If you're seriously considering those careers, the pay should be one of the last things on your mind.

Both my parents are teachers, in UK they earn £30,000 as a head of department in a private school, start at around £18k though.

However, being a professor is TOTALLY different. You don't decide to be a professor then pick a subject, you pick a subject then become a professor, and probably the most important part of your job is research, not teaching. However, salaries reach £75kish in Uk which probably equates to low 6 figures in the US. On the other hand though, getting a job as a maths teacher is easy. University professorships are scarce and FIERCELY competetive. Its not an easy life and you have to be very talented and extremely passionate about your subject.

I like picking my arse but couldn't support a family on it's produce. If I got paid a decent wage for it then I'd definitely consider it as a career move.

If being a musician wasn't as glamorous as you see on TV (which it isn't, I know professional musicians) would you still play guitar? Not every choice you make in life should be what will pay the most. Being poor and truly happy working a job you love > being rich, miserable, and having to force yourself to work everyday because you hate it.

Because you like Blink-182 and no one would sleep with an 18 year-old who still likes Blink-182.

I find that offensive. I am 21 and I actually like a few Blink-182 songs.

But we all know it didn't happen. If it had, you wouldn't have changed your story to "it was some girl I met at a bar" when you started it off with "I had sex with my teacher I'm so cool."

Not much. My mom is an English teacher at the local college/university and she's been working there for about 12 years and is making about $40k a year.

Not all teachers have such a rough time with the kids. (At my school) maybe 10% are a little rowdy, but 99% are completely respectful and don't dare argue with a teacher over something trivial. And the ones that are a little rowdy atleast know when it's appropriate and when to stop. And some teachers jobs themselves don't really take anything out of them either. I don't think being a gym teacher would be too challenging. lol.

You can only pay employees as much as you have. Schools pay teachers based on what the state gives them, and the NFL pays players based on what fans/ads give them. It just so happens more money is spent by the public to the NFL than to taxes. Nobody simply decided football players should make more than teachers.
