Average Teacher Salary Rank: 5th
Starting Teacher Salary Rank: 1st
Salary raise last year: 3.0 %
Salary raise over 10 years: 28.0 %

Michigan is seventh on our comfort scale because there are great lakes and good teacher salaries.  New teachers make an average starting salary of $35,901 and an average overall salary of $61,560.  

If you enjoy natural beauty,  snowy winters, and desire an affordable lifestyle, this northern state is a great place to become a teacher.

Teachers that have a Master's Degree live even better in Michigan - but you'll be comfortable with a standard teaching certificate if you don't mind a few less canoe and hunting trips or a cabin in the UP!
