Minnesota is 26th on our comfort scale with starting salaries of $34,025 average salaries of $53,680.  It's an affordable state to live in and has a reputation for being "Minnesota Nice".  Additionally, this state is an outdoor enthusiast's dream with year round activities such as snow-mobiling and fishing. Plus, Minnesota summers are perfect - and you'll have them all to yourself on a teacher's schedule.

Teachers that have a Master's Degree live extremely well in Minnesota - but you'll be comfortable with a standard teaching certificate if you don't mind a few less Twins games and a cabin up north!
