This article will bring you to the list of the highest paying cities for teachers. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. At this point, whoever doesn’t think teachers are underpaid is a fool. Most teachers put in a lot more hours than the rest of us, while dealing with classrooms of energetic kids or moody teenagers all day. On top of this, many of them barely make enough money to survive between the cost of living and paying off student loans. Instead of getting a much-anticipated summer break from it all, they instead have to turn to part-time jobs or summer school to make ends meet. Thinking about this makes you wonder, just where are teachers paid the most in the world?
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the highest paying cities for teachers from their list.
The first one is Orlando, Florida. To kick off our list of highest paying cities for teachers we have Orlando. Teachers in this state don’t have the best average salary, but surely it’s a lot better than many others across the country. Florida ranks around midway when it comes to national education rankings by state so that they could use some quality teachers. If sunshine and warm weather are your thing, you can’t go wrong with a teaching job here. The next city on our list is Atlanta, Georgia. The Atlanta area has a ton of school districts that are all vastly different. You may not be able to live too comfortably in the heart of the city on a teacher’s salary, but there are plenty of suburbs within driving distance. All teachers in Georgia receive retirement benefits and access to healthcare, so that’s a plus too. At last, but not least we are mentioning Houston, Texas. If you haven’t noticed yet, teaching pays off in Texas. Honestly, if you’re a teacher and you don’t mind the heat (or the south), you should be in Texas, where the benefits are good, the salary is comfortable and the cost of living is low.
