I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the average salary is for a teacher in a Catholic or Private School in NJ. My special area is computer teacher or math teacher if the position doesn't require specific certification for math. I taught math for 20 year, but they have since changed req. for teachers in 6-8. I am thinking of leaving public schools and working at a private one if I can afford to do so.

Thanks!

My fiancee taught in the Catholic Schools her first year out of college. She made $29,000 per year (before taxes) and had to pay into all of her benefits. The health plans were nothing to write home about either. Most of the women she worked with were married and had husbands with high paying jobs in the city (she worked in North Jersey). It's sad, because many of the urban Catholic schools offer an alternative to the deplorable public schools, but attracting good teachers on that salary is next to impossible. She jumped at the first public school job she found, which paid $14K more per year with phenomenal benefits. As young people starting out, we just couldn't afford to try to eke out a living on $29K plus my government salary. Now she makes more than me

When I was interviewing in 2001, I was offered several positions at Catholic schools and the salaries were in the low-mid twenties.

Though I had taught in a Catholic school in AL and enjoyed it (the salary differential there was much less), I just couldn't even consider it here. Such a shame.

You'd be higher up on the scale given your many years of exp., but the Catholic school salaries just don't go high.

In central jersey you would be making anywhere from the low to mid twenties. If you could afford this salary I think you would have no problem getting a job if you are a math teacher. Good Luck.
