Teacher Pay

On average, the amount of remuneration paid to a teacher for providing the service is called the teacher’s salary. For 2019-20, starting teacher salaries range from $57,845 (bachelor’s, no previous teaching experience) to $87,510 (master’s, eight years of teaching experience plus additional courses). New teachers with a master’s degree but no previous teaching experience earn $65,026.


Under the agreement, which has not yet been ratified by UFT members, the maximum salary for teachers will increase from $119,565 to $128,657. The SeeThroughNy proposed salary table shows how much teachers earn according to the number of years they have worked and the number of education points they have accumulated.

Unsurprisingly, teachers in Luxembourg pay more for hours worked. However, the other end of the scale is more interesting, showing that teachers in Colombia, Chile, Mexico and the United States spend more time teaching than in any other country.

New York State professors earn the highest salaries in their specialty in the United States, according to a new report from the Rockefeller Institute of Government. According to the State University of New York (SUNY) think tank, the average salary of teachers in New York is around $79,588.
