North Dakota

North Dakota teaching salaries are very low when compared with the national average for teacher pay. In fact, a 2005 survey by the AFT placed North Dakota at 49th in the nation when it comes to how much their teachers get paid. The average salary for a teacher in North Dakota is almost $10,000 less than the national average for teachers, and new teachers may fare even worse. Of course, when considering salary, it is always important to factor in cost of living. As North Dakota is one of the cheapest states to reside in, it makes sense that salaries would be lower. Teachers can help give their salaries a boost in this state and others by pursuing a higher level degree or additional certifications.
