Masters in Teaching Salary

Master of Arts in Teaching Salary

Teaching salaries vary greatly among states and within states, among the various school districts. The one constant for almost all teaching positions is that teachers who hold a master's degree get paid more than their counterparts who completed their teaching education with a bachelor's degree. The elevated degree and seniority are the two determining factors in salary variation within any given educational jurisdiction. It is also true in some cases that science and mathematics teachers get paid more than social science or English teachers simply because there are fewer of them and it takes a higher salary to bring them on board. All we can work with in this instance is average salaries as provided by the federal government and in some cases by the American Federation of Teachers. All salaries are annual but based on a nine month school year.
