Kansas provides teachers with salaries that are on the low end compared to the national average. Overall averages for the state placed it as 38th in the nation in a 2005 AFT survey. Both those just entering the field and those who have some experience can expect to make salaries that tend to be lower than what those in other states are making. Of course, this does not take into account the cost of living, which can help a smaller salary go much further than that of a teacher working in a more expensive area. Shortages in math and science teachers may help teachers working in those fields have an easier time finding employment in the state. Salaries will vary by area and are impacted largely by the teacherës level of experience and education.
