My desire is to become an elementary school teacher in NY? How well do they get paid?
I'm starting college this year. My desire ever since I was little was to be an elementary school teacher. My high school teachers are always complaining how much their job as well as salary sucks. Is it that bad? Also what time of the year do they get paid?

The starting salary is around 30,000. After 20 years of experience and a doctorates you could make as much as 75,000. Considering that the dude who holds the slow sign on road construction sites makes 50,000 a year it is pretty pathetic.

I agree with some others here. the more you educate yourself as a teacher the more you will make. also, look into private schools as they always pay more.
