I'm seeking information on what it's like to teach at a private secondary school in Manhattan. Specifically, I want to know how/if it's possible to support yourself on a teacher's salary in that city (I'm currently living and teaching in Dallas--very different!). I can't seem to find out the average private school teacher's salary--anyone know of any online resources for such data? Or can anyone provide an anecdotal look at what life would be like?

Thanks so much!

Can you get access to the New York Times? There are always ads about teaching in NY in the classified section, though I haven't pursued them myself. I live in Long Island and have Masters in Ed. but I'm not interested in working in the City.

Good luck to you.

I think in this area that private school teachers generally make less money than their counterparts in the public school system. I don't know if it is the same in Dallas? So, why not consider public schools?

The only benefit to teaching at a private school, compared to a public school in NYC, is that the students will generally behave themselves better and won't try to throw things at you or get into knife fights with you.
