Top 3 places with high teacher salaries

Landing teaching jobs in the right places provides teachers with opportunities to save money, live slightly more lavishly than at home, or to travel on weekends while abroad. Of course, whether or not these things are possible relies heavily on salary. Below are the top three places Teach Away recommends if you’re a teacher seeking a job overseas and looking for the highest salary options.

1. Abu Dhabi

Teaching in Abu Dhabi is an extremely effective route to a high-paying teacher salary overseas. Educators with two or more years of teaching experience can expect a salary ranging from $3500-5500 USD per month if they’re fortunate enough to land a job in the right public school program. Private school positions pay in the $2400-4000 range. The more experience you have on your resume, the higher your salary could be.
