Teacher Jobs in Missouri

New teachers in Missouri can expect to make $30,064 during the first year of their full-time contract. While this is slightly lower than the per capita personal salary of other careers in the state, teachers quickly exceed state averages by being rewarded for tenure and certifications. Dynamic, certified teachers are required to fill some state-defined shortages in the preschool, elementary and secondary panels - some opportunities are special education, and foreign languages. Teachers are also encouraged to apply to larger districts like Springfield R-XII, St. Louis, and Rockwood R-VI first as they generally have the most need.
