  • How Model Teaching Can Help You Earn a Higher Salary

School districts across the country provide varying scales for teacher salary based on the number of years an individual has taught, as well as their level of education. But many school districts also consider an individual’s participation in graduate-level professional development when considering if they are worthy of a salary increase! By earning additional academic units through accredited universities, teachers can easily move up the salary scale without having to return to school for an expensive and time-consuming higher education degree. With so many districts providing options for teachers to increase their salaries, academic credit course continuing education courses incentivize teachers to continue learning new educational concepts to apply to their classroom, while helping them become lifelong learners.

Teacher Salary Advancement – Some Examples & How We Can Help

In Florida, for example, Broward County Public Schools allow for incentive awards of $2,000 for teachers that meet certain criteria and earn 15 semester hours of (1 semester unit or 1 semester credit).

In the North Shore School District in Washington State, an increase in the salary schedule depends on how many credits or clock hours teachers earn after the first Bachelor’s degree in addition to the number of years of teaching experience they have… (Read More Below)

New York City School teachers can apply for increases in salary differentials by earning additional academic credits or degrees beyond a Bachelor’s degree, resulting in thousands of dollars added per year.

In the San Diego Unified School District, individuals with a bachelor’s degree that earn 36-semester units or a master’s degree can earn about $3,000 extra per year; and for individuals with a master’s degree or higher who earn even more semester units can continue to move salary lanes.

And in Maryland, Montgomery County Public Schools allows for advanced salary placement if individuals earn 60 post-baccalaureate hours for teachers holding a Bachelor’s degree, and 90 post-baccalaureate hours for teachers holding a Master’s degree.

This list goes on. Of course, not every district may offer salary advancement options, and each district has their own specific approval process, requirements, and procedures that teachers must undergo to increase their salary. Increasingly more and more districts across the country realize the value in incentivizing higher-level continuing education, where teachers are rightly rewarded for their work to continually learn and grow their teaching practices through interactions with University coursework.

So at what point is paying for academic courses through a University actually worth it in order to reap the benefits of salary advancements and lane changes in qualifying districts? After all, paying for University credits can get prohibitively expensive for many people!

“I didn’t feel like I had a ton of money to spend on earning graduate-level credits, even though I knew finishing them would allow me to apply for a salary increase. I was so happy to find a company that provided reasonable pricing for their University- Partnered courses. I plan to take many more Model Teaching courses in the future, and have referred many of my friends!”

This is where course partnerships come in to play. Many course providers follow a rigorous application process that allows them to offer courses in collaboration with specific Universities. Individuals can then pay a lower rate directly to those course providers, and then request the academic credit and transcripts directly from the University. These partnerships are a 100% valid and cost-effective way of earning graduate-level credits, with course transcripts documenting the semester units for the individual. Since nearly all districts pre-approve regionally accredited universities, completing University- partnered courses through providers like Model Teaching is a great choice for many teachers.  Feel free to view these courses below.

“I appreciated the templates, resources, and rubrics that came with this course. This course was such a great value, was easy to use and understand, and prepared me to implement a ton of new ideas into my classroom!”

Model Teaching recognized early on that teachers needed a way to maximize their income and decrease the expenses associated with continuing education, while still gaining access to valuable high- quality content that they find useful for their classrooms. Early course development processes provided Model Teaching with a streamlined approach to developing resources and content for teachers that were impactful but cost-effective. This is why Model Teaching is able to offer academic credits to teachers that is often up to 45% lower in cost than other continuing education and salary advancement providers, while still providing better quality content and resources.

Individuals that choose to pursue salary advancement or salary lane changes typically have two main motivators for doing so:

  • They want to maximize the amount of money they can earn per year
  • They want to maximize the amount of time they spend on professional learning that is applicable to their classrooms

With the lower cost but greater value of Model Teaching courses, your investment into your salary advancement is stretched even further, allowing you to gain a higher return on your continuing education investment. And since Model Teaching courses are 100% online, allow you to work at your own pace, and provide you with an efficient and standardized way to complete our lesson content, you can feel good about knowing your time was spent wisely.

Ready to advance in your salary? Follow these steps!

  1. Check your district’s salary schedule to determine their policies for changing salary lanes, earning salary differentiation, or advancing your salary scale.
  2. Choose a University partnered course or University partnered course bundle pack from Model Teaching.
  3. If required or suggested by your district, request pre-approval for your selected courses. Each district has different policies so double-checking you are selecting the right courses is always a good idea!
  4. Take the course, at your own pace and on your own time- completely online, then request your credits and transcript directly from the partnered University (you’ll get detailed instructions from Model Teaching).
  5. Since most districts require a specific application to increase your salary with deadlines at different times in the school year, make sure that you apply using your district’s application process in the correct time frame!
