Coachemup I have a question about Teachers pay?

By: PasadenaTrojan

So I often heard how poorly teachers are paid.  And have believed it. 

But have a lifelong friend with a masters who teaches a "non essential" class and makes $120k/year.  Here in Socal.  His wife has same credentials and also pulls in that number. So $250k for the family.  Clearly not rich but sure isnt the $35k/year we always hear for teachers. 

Just curious. How does that work?  And what is most typical? Thanks!

Is it low starting salary and then rapid raises????  Or just district driven?

Just trying to understand how my taxes are used....
