lowest asthma rate? steups.
At least it's that instead of AIDS :( Maybe that's where all of that academic research is going towards.
I know some folks in NC that I think they must love their jobs because that teacher salary down there is no beuno. One person told me that they only get paid once a month.

Compared to what teachers make in this area and NYC.

How do salaries grow in New York?
Starting Salary: $44,370
Average Salary: $72,708
New York has the 1st highest average salaries for teachers - and 2nd highest for starting teachers.
But living in New York - especially NYC - having a teaching certificate for K-12 will be tough to have a high standard of living in the high cost-of-living area. Get your masters degree to augment your salary as your career progresses.
But then again - it is New York, the most interesting place in the world to live. You have other benefits, so being a teacher may just be your day job!

danng @ ms_JaZe. i hope the cost of living is dirt cheap for them to be starting out at $30K
It's cheap but not that dang cheap. When I saw that some former principals came up here to teach, and said them making 70K was an increase I really wanted to fall out. 30K I was making that as a substitute teacher. I would definitely take them up on the free certifications to move up in the pay scale bracket.
