Connecticut offers some of the highest average teaching salaries found anywhere in the United States. The 2005 survey by the AFT found that average salaries in Connecticut were higher than any other state, making it an attractive choice for many interested in pursuing a teaching career. Connecticut is a wealthy state and one that spends a great deal of money funding educational programs, so teachers can expect to be well paid and to have facilities that are more than adequate for their needs. Teachers should be aware that Connecticut has very high standards for its teachers and more education and certification may be required than in other states. While more requirements may be required, teachers can expect to be well compensated for any investment put into training, and those with higher degrees can expect significant jumps in salary.
