North Carolina has be come one of the worst states in the US
to teach. The pay is low, the benefits are awful and they are
getting worse all the time. They just cut health insurance
for retirees. VA, is okay, many teachers live in NC but
teacher in VA.. Georgia can be good depending on where you
live. They are both way better then North Carolina. Be
careful moving to the south.. It's not like up north.
They will not give you your years of service towards your
pension. A 16th year teacher in North Carolina makes about
40,000.. 70/30 Heath insurance, no vision no dental. 9,000
dollars for life insurance. You pay towards your pension and
this is not the cheapest southern state to live in. If you
have children you will be paying around $400 a check for them.
