Teacher pay in Nevada

Patrick Gibbons

Being a teacher isn’t a half-bad job. I should know – I was a history teacher for a short time. The only problem is that you get paid based on how long you’ve worked, not how good you are at teaching.

Nevertheless, the estimated average salary for a teacher in Nevada is $53,547.

And don’t forget about benefits.

Retirement: $10,977
Workers comp: $403
Unemployment insurance: $43
Medicare: $712
Medical Insurance $6,707
Other: $286

That brings the grand total (salary plus benefits) to $72,675 for the average teacher. It also looks like teacher pay will outpace inflation by about three percent since 2008.
