Money Money Money: How Much Do Teachers Make Abroad?

When teachers first look at teaching jobs abroad the first question they want answered is "How Much Money Can I Make As A Teacher Abroad?"  For teaching jobs in England, they particularly worry about the cost of living and if they will earn enough to survive living there.  I completely understand.  I've answered this a thousand times and will likely answer it a thousand more.  Before I go on, here are some blog posts I recommend:

Yes, you'll earn good money.  Yes, you'll pay off some debt and yes, you'll travel heaps.

Here's an interesting article about teachers earning $125 000 in America schools.  Elissa Gootman writes,

Experts hope it could offer a window into some of the most pressing and elusive questions in education: Is a collection of superb teachers enough to make a great school? Are six-figure salaries the way to get them? And just what makes a teacher great?"
Wow.  I bet you have something to add to this discussion.  What do you think?
