Recent teacher shortages have increased the demand for new teachers in Indiana and those entering the field may have an easier time finding employment as a consequence. Beginning teacher salaries in the state are lower than many other states, however, so getting additional education and experience is key to bringing up a teaching salary in Indiana.
