Teaching salaries in Oklahoma are among some of the lowest in the nation. In national rankings of average teacher salaries, Oklahoma places 47th on the list. New teacher salaries are a little better, with those straight out of college making salaries that are ranked 33rd in the nation. Teachers should not let this be a deterrent from teaching in Oklahoma, however. The cost of living in the state is fairly low so money will go further. Additionally, teacher salaries have increased rapidly in the past few years, showing a strong investment in education statewide. Those who are worried about low salaries may want to consider getting additional education as a way to boost the minimum salary that can be expected for teaching positions.
