New Public School Teacher Take-Home Pay ???
Posted by KingofZydeco on 8/6 at 9:46 am
Can anyone give me a ballpark monthly take home pay my fiance will bring home? She is starting her first teaching job in Jefferson parish this week. I'm working up a little budget spreadsheet and want to put in a decent estimate of what her take home pay will be. The starting gross salary is ~$42k a year. She will be getting health insurance just for her (I have my own through my job).

What would be a ballpark # to assume? Thanks.

Take home will probably be around 70% of gross.

2400-2600 per month if she gets it in 12 months.

2700-2900 is she gets it in 10 months.

Assuming no children.

Teachers pay 8% to TRSL, but no SS.

Health ins. is usually less than private sector jobs.

Assuming bi weekly pay, 8% retirement taken out, and $140 a month insurance (which is close), take home per paycheck will be $1150.

ETA: $1250 if paid semi monthly. Both figures assume being paid year round obviously. Here is a link to a helpful pay check calculator.

You should run the numbers on both


I found it was cheaper to add my wife to my company's plan as opposed to her getting her own


Eta: I wasn't too impressed with the benefits package when my wife worked in EBR

My company has cheap insurance (~$55/month), but to add a spouse they charge about ~$60/month plus a $150/month surcharge if she is available for health insurance through her employeer. It should be a lot cheaper for her to go through the state.

My wife is a teacher with Iberia parish. She also makes 42K, and her take home is $ 2275 a month with a couple of bonuses and stipends during the year.

I would definitely keep her on the school board insurance, but if you have kids it gonna be better that they are covered under your employer.

My wife is a teacher. She started at about the same rate, after taxes m-0, insurance, union dues, and little extra retirement, I think it was closer to 2000.

School insurance is awful in Arkansas.


Take a look, it's unreal. The "state" employees have a different rate than "public school."

Yes, they are both state, but for some reason insurance is completely different.

Public School Teachers in Arkansas


Arkansas State

It's unreal.


For example- "Gold Plan" for Public School with the whole family is over 1k a month. The same coverage for "state" is $420.

For those who click, the "bronze" is a high deductible plan.


It's good shit, teachers raise some serious hell over the difference in rates.


The state employee insurance is cheaper than my guard insurance.

Insurance with state group will run her about $130-140 a month

Teacher retirement will deduct over $300

This. How the hell do teachers complain about pay with a starting salary like that?

Is starting salary in St. Tammany about the same as the figures already listed?

I'm not sure if its the same here but I know the teachers insurance, at least in East Baton Rouge, is nothing to write home about

700 a month for family and the deductibles aren't that great

St Tammany looks to be a little better with bachelors degrees starting around 44

Works out to 35 bucks an hour, so nothing to complain about surely

The rough part is the pay schedule, you won't make significantly more than you start at when you look at years of service compared to other types of jobs

This, I'll make 47 in my first year. However, it doesn't go up much unless I move into administration or change careers.

I think the pay is great, fwiw.

That's actually pretty nice. 44 for 181 days, I do 195 for 47.

I'm glad I have the extra days. 47 probably goes further in NWA than in BR.

My wife is a public school teacher and makes about $2500/month. No insurance, married, one kid. Salary is somewhere around $43k. She only gets paid once a month as well.
