Question by SeaDawg: 2010: What is the average starting salary for a public school teacher?
I will be graduating soon and will be attempting to obtain a job as a public high school art teacher. I was just wondering what the starting salary is like. Just out of curiosity. Also, can anyone tell me more about teaching at a private school? How much harder is it to get a job at one of those?
Sorry, Im interested in central PA

cant answer without knowing your location. There is quite a difference between large cities and more suburban areas – as well as variations between the different areas of the country.
Urban Los Angeles – you would start at 45k
25 miles away in a local suburb you would get 30k
private schools in my area offer 25k
the local archdiocese offers 22k
some states are at about 28k statewide.
