Master’s in Education Programs in Missouri
How much you’ll make as a teacher will depend largely upon where you teach. The average teacher’s salary in the state is in the low to middle forties range -25 percent more than the average worker in the state makes – but teachers in large urban districts like St. Louis and Kansas City tend to bring home more than teachers in the more rural areas of the state. Having a master’s degree can earn you more money, but how much more depends on where you teach and how many years of experience you have. In St. Louis, a beginning teacher with a master’s degree makes $2,500 more per year than a beginning teacher without one, while more experienced teachers can make an additional $5,000 a year by having a master’s degree, according to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
Teachers face a sunny job outlook in Missouri, with the state projected to add 16,000 elementary and secondary school jobs between 2008 and 2018 – a 10 percent increase in the state’s teaching force.
