As school districts across the Greater Houston area finalize teacher salaries for the 2021-22 school year, Community Impact Newspaper compiled starting teacher salaries for each local district covered by the newspaper.
Out of the 18 districts analyzed, the average starting teacher salary sits at about $57,000. Eleven school districts pay above the average, while Houston, Katy, Tomball, Friendswood, Montgomery, Magnolia and Willis ISDs fall below average.
The analysis does not include Clear Creek ISD because the district has not yet finalized its starting teacher salary for the coming school year. CCISD’s starting teacher salary for the 2020-21 school year was $56,000. Additionally, Conroe ISD’s starting teacher salary is proposed as of July 1.
