North Dakota Teacher Careers, Certification & Salaries
Until very recently North Dakota has been one of the forgotten Plains States where agriculture remained the economic staple and where the lack of commercial or industrial opportunities was causing young people to leave the state in search of career opportunities. In 2010 for the first time in a decade the state saw a net increase in population, driven by the development of an oil industry in the state. Fargo grew by 20% over the last decade and the state has an unemployment rate of 5%, roughly half that of the nation. Some school districts have emergency programs for filling science and math teaching slots; the healthy state economy is going to continue to drive growth there.
North Dakota Teacher Salaries
When compared to the rest of the states North Dakota teaching salaries do not fare well - but then, the cost of living is a fraction of what the statisticians find in other states. However according to a 2009 survey the average salary for teachers in North Dakota was $41,654 - ranked 49th among the 50 states.1 The Fargo Unified School District salary schedule for 2010 - 2011 shows a teacher with a bachelor's degree and five years on the job earning $37,695.
