In 2014, the annual mean wage an American teacher made was a little over $57,000 a year.

Teacher pay in the Bay Area is higher than the national average, and salaries vary depending on where you're located: This year, a teacher in Oakland can make up to $83,000 a year, whereas the same teacher can go to Hillsborough and make up to $124,000.
