In a state better known for its huge casinos than its educational programs, teachers in Nevada make out pretty well when it comes to salary. In fact, Nevada ranks dead in the center of average teacher salaries, coming in at number 25. The average salary of a Nevada teacher is just below the national average, but more worrying is that it has not changed much in recent years to keep up with the rate of inflation. While this may be the case, most teachers should be able to get by just fine on their salaries, as the general cost of living is not especially high in Nevada. Added benefits like training programs, dental and medical insurance and retirement plans can be additional perks to consider when choosing a school to work with. Getting additional degrees, such as a Master’s or PhD can boost your salary significantly in Nevada.
