Yeah I've considered all that and I'd have to say that yes it is.

That's surprising to me! I teach in MA and teachers make up to 90/100K here.
Oh I know. I have friends a couple districts over making like $95k.
Our state is a really odd state. Teacher salaries range from 65k to 105k/yr which makes the average salary somewhere in the $75k range. Or if you take the total amount of salaries divided by the amount of teachers in this state, you get an average in the 75k range. But at the same time, it's not all about the money, either. If it was, well, I would have probably tried to get at a school that t pays better.
Yes, but he needs the VP experience to eventually apply for principal jobs. And VP salaries increase by quite a bit each year so might top out in the six-figure range, I’d imagine.
As Aces said, though, it's not always all about the money for everyone.
Yes, but I was responding to other posters who were surprised by the lower starting salary. I was merely stating that it will start on the lower side and then quickly increase, relatively speaking, so it will be worth it eventually.
Yeah I have to agree. I mean it probably is on the low side but it's not something I'm going to loose any sleep over. Our bills and everything is paid and we live well below our income level and we're doing fine as is. Besides... If it really were about money, I'd go find a job with some money like what my husband makes. (~$160k/yr).
