Educators - Wages & Trends

nohourlynomonthly

High school teachers who coach sports or supervise other extracurricular activities may be paid extra for their work.

Teachers who work full time usually receive benefits. Common benefits include sick leave, health insurance, and a retirement plan.

Over half of all public school teachers belong to unions -- mainly the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association. These unions negotiate with employers regarding wages, hours, and conditions of employment.

Because teachers usually work a ten-month year, their wages are reported annually.
