I started with my first teaching degree, in the US.
My mother taught in California.
She taught first grade.
My father was a teacher in his native Ireland, teaching English.
My grandmother, who had lived in the UK since the late 1950s, had been teaching English in the U.K. since the mid-20th century.
I grew up hearing about these incredible teachers, but I was never quite sure how much they paid.
I had a feeling that it was much higher than the typical teaching salary, but my initial salary of $8,000 in 1984 was about $40,000 today.
So what I wanted to know was: How much did it cost to teach in a classroom?
The answer was a lot.
And it took me many years to figure out how much I actually paid for it.
I wanted more than just my own paycheck, so I started to look at how much a teaching assistant made, how much it cost for a teacher to hire and train students, and how much each class cost.
The answers to these questions are not so simple, and I will go into them in more detail later.
I began by looking at a handful of US states.
I looked at how many teachers there were in each state.
For instance, California had 5.7 million teachers in 2016, while Mississippi had 4.7.
But that’s not all: Mississippi has 4,000 public school teachers and 1,400 charter school teachers.
There were also thousands of private school teachers, who are not required to be paid.
So, I looked for the average teaching salary for each state, and then I looked to see how much teacher salaries were paid to students and for each type of teaching job.
For example, the average teacher salary in California is $80,000 per year, and that’s a pretty high number.
However, there are other ways to measure teacher salaries, such as salary in each year, teacher salary as a percentage of the state’s total population, and percentage of students enrolled in schools.
I also looked at the median teacher salary for the entire country.
For California, I calculated the median per-pupil teacher salary, which is $50,000.
This number is fairly close to what I had calculated before.
In the next few steps, I then calculated teacher salary per pupil, which was $7,500.
This is a slightly higher number, because teachers are often compensated in part for the number of students in their classrooms.
The median per pupil teacher salary is $47,000, and the median school teacher salary was $50.
But I found a similar picture for the median income of teachers in each county.
For each county, I compared the median gross salary per teacher with the median annual household income for the county.
In addition, I also compared the total gross income of all teachers in the county to the median total income of the entire county.
These numbers are just a snapshot of what I found.
I then compared the percentage of teachers employed in each area.
I calculated this percentage by dividing the total number of teachers (i.e., all teachers) by the total total population.
The number of educators per 1,000 people is just like the number per capita, but teachers in every area are more likely to be employed.
The total number per 1% of the population is the same as the total population of the county, so that number is a good proxy for total per capita teacher salary.
I used the median of all the teacher salaries to calculate the median household income, which I also used to calculate median gross income.
For a given year, I averaged the median salary for all teachers for each year and then multiplied that number by the median person’s median income for that year.
Finally, I multiplied the median incomes for teachers by the percentage in each field of study.
For the total median income, I used average gross salaries per teacher, median household incomes per teacher for each county for the previous year, median total incomes per educator for the next year, the median number of children enrolled in each school in each region of the country for the last year, state median per capita income per educator in each of the previous three years, and median total per pupil salary per educator from last year.
In total, the total per person median income per teacher was $75,000 for the state of California, $53,000 statewide, $37,000 from California’s top 10 cities, $35,000 to the cities and counties with the highest median incomes, and $30,000 across the US as a whole.
I concluded that there was a significant difference in median teacher salaries in different states.
In California, the teachers who are paid the most are the ones in the state that have the highest incomes and the highest percentage of pupils enrolled in school.
For teachers in other states, such pay is more common.
For those in the states with the lowest median incomes
