Make a Living
Teachers in North Carolina make $53,975 on average and receive a comprehensive benefits package that includes medical, retirement and other benefits. Some positions also offer bonuses for teaching particular subjects, such as Advanced Placement, Reading or Math. There are also additional compensation opportunities for teachers who are National Board Certified, deemed “Highly Qualified” or maintain an “Advanced Teaching role.”
Enjoy Comprehensive Benefits
The benefits you get on top of salary are part of your total compensation, and teachers tend to get a better benefit package than most other jobs. In North Carolina, teachers receive vacation time, secure retirement plans, plus the standard medical, dental and vision insurance you would expect as a professional. And, at most schools, you’ll have about two months to travel, earn extra income, pursue hobbies or develop yourself.
Grow Your Career
The classroom is just the beginning. When you become a teacher, you open the door to many opportunities—some you may have never dreamed of! In addition to opportunities to make more by earning a master’s degree, moving into an advanced teaching role or getting certified to teach in particular subjects/areas, teachers can move on to become Principals, Instructional Specialists, Policy Fellows and Staff, and even Start Up founders!
