Median pay for high school teachers (BLS 2021)

While job growth and opportunities will vary by region, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects an increase in demand for trained school teachers from 2014 to 2024 due to increased enrollment, growing class sizes and a large segment of the workforce expected to retire. More opportunities can be expected in rural and urban areas than in suburban districts. For more information, check out the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ pages on Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers.
