I would love if different people from different states can chime in and list what Teachers typically make (salary) in your city,state and other info like benefits (is the FAMILY included or is it like 500/mo to add a husband, etc) and year-round/trad. This is great for senior level students like myself who are beginning country-wide job search and need to now where to start! I would especially love to learn about Boston, as the info is hard to find b/c of the unions. I am in York County, Yorktown, Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, VIRGINIA and the starting salary around here is about 35000 through 40000, depending on your step (years of experience) and degree for a TEACHER. I also know that Chapel Hill, NC (pretty much ALL NC for the matter) are about $33691 for STARTING teachers and about $39710 for 5-years experience. Also, benefits do not include a spouse/child and cost extra (I think between 300 and 600/month).
