Teachers who are planning to work in Nebraska will find that salaries in the state tend to be on the low side when compared to the national average. More precisely, the AFT ranked the state at 36th in its survey of average teacher pay nationwide. This places the state well below the national average in terms of teacher compensation, which may make finances a bit tight for those who choose to work in this area. While salaries may still be low, they are on the rise from previous years and may continue to do so. Teachers should consider additional benefits offered by Nebraska schools like loan deferment and special training programs that can help them boost their skills and can be a valuable asset at a job.
