Teacher Salary A need for a Better paid start

Who Am I?

My name is Katlynn Sliger, and I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science Education degree at the University of Central Missouri to become a middle school science teacher.

Missouri, on average, is the 3rd lowest paid state in the US at $30,064, just ahead of South Dakota at $29,851 and Montana at $27,274.
We as educators do not decide to become teachers because we think that they make good money, instead we become teachers because we want to make a difference in the lives of young adolescents and help shape the world into a well-educated place for students to develop in.
Would you be where you are today without a teacher?

I believe that teachers should make more money due to their significant importance to our society. Without them, no one would be where they are today. Teachers work very hard for their positions but with that also comes a bill to pay.

“the average graduate of a master’s in education degree finished with more than $50,000 in debt — $8,000 more than the debt of a typical MBA graduate. Another way to think about it is that the average newly minted teacher in 2012 had to pay $429 a month in student debt payments. Half owed more. The report’s authors predict that these teachers and other indebted graduates won’t be able to earn enough money to afford to pay back their loans”
