At over $72,000, Connecticut offers teachers the fifth highest average salary in the nation, according to the National Center on Education Statistics. That’s almost $14,000 higher than the national average! What does that mean? It means you can afford to live in Connecticut, buy a home and raise a family.
According to the Connecticut Department of Labor, of all jobs in Connecticut requiring a bachelor’s degree, teaching is ranked highly for the number of available opportunities—and its average salary is on par with many other occupations in that category.
