Michigan is third on our comfort scale because there are great lakes and good teacher salaries. New teachers make an average starting salary of $34,724 and an average overall salary of $63,940.
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!
