Montana Teacher Careers, Certification & Salaries
Montana is a big state - the Big Sky Country - but it is big in area only. It has the forty-fourth largest population of all the states, which makes it which fourth lowest in density. Teaching in Montana is not especially lucrative compared to other states, which is not a surprise in state with a small population and a limited economy. But the cost of living is not prohibitive either, if your home is well insulated. Montana is one of the states with a large number of rural schools and schools on reservations, both of which are options for teachers who are willing to take on the challenges of a rural, mostly low income student population.
