In a few years, i'll have a Bachelor's Degree in Middle Level Education (4-8, but I want to stay with the 4th and 5th graders) and just afterward a Masters Degree with two years teaching experience while getting it. I'm a 21 year old male and I'm currently in Arkansas. How well do you think I'll be paid in Missouri in relation to other places? In Springdale/Rogers they're offering in the 40's for starting teachers, so I'm just wondering if Missouri beats that while staying in the 45-100,000 population city range. I have NO desire whatsoever to teach in a big city or teach in a place with high minority population. Any help you guys could give I'd really, really appreciate.

I saw in North Central Missouri (Linn County [Brookfield, Marceline, and such] they paid teachers straight out 23k for just a B.A. and 27k for Master's. That was this February. That can be different than the more populated areas.

Which is low. Sad to see America pays their teachers so low of a salary. I now here in CA you can make that at In&Out Burger fresh out of cell block "d"

23-27 is way, way, way too low. Even based on that fact I know I should stay put.

True, but still, when Springdale and Rogers are starting teachers out in the 40's, I'd be stupid to leave.

According to christina's stats above, 40k is the mean. If they truely start at that, then teachers never get a raise in Springdale/Rogers.

Either they don't really start at 40k, or maybe they all leave after the first year! lol
