    Do you think making 55k a yr is comfortable living? (Serious)

    I ask this, because I plan on being a Highschool teacher and the starting salary in Texas will be around 52k + stipends for Bilingual certification which I have... So it will be around 55k a year. by the time I graduate (2 yrs). I don't want to live in a mansion or anything, but still live nice. Not have to struggle.

    Also, I have a gf and her projected income is around 55k-65k as well.


    Side question: What is your/will be projected income when you graduate or at the time being? How do you currently live?


    Please keep it serious brahs.

    I think it'd fine as long as you don't overspend (obviously), and pile up too much debt. I don't know how much inflation we're gonna have though so we'll see.
    Lower back rehab~ Oh well.

    Depends on what your expenditures are man. If you pull in 52k, maybe 45ish after taxes but you spend like a whore, then no, not comfy.

    I say 55k is great.

    so with your 55k and her 55k, you guys will be living comfortable. unless you plan on living like a rockstar you should be fine. but than again, living "nice" to you may be different to me.

    i plan on making 40k right out of college and i have about 15k in loans to pay off. ill be living with my parents for a while to pay off the loans.

    The key is living within your means. You could make 4 x that and still feel poor if you don't manage your money.
    You can, and need to find a ground that you know you are suppose to stand on.. hence, stand your ground, this is the place where you know everything is as it should be for you. If you stand in a place where you know in your heart things are wrong, most things around you will never be right.

    Rule number one, never work at being what another man defines as being "honorable", Honorable is is being true to what you know and and doing what you know is right for you..

    You should be fine for most areas of Texas, unless you're trying to live like downtown Houston/Dallas.

    But...


    The Texas Association of School Boards and Texas Association of School Administrators have released the 2008-2009 Salaries and Benefits in Texas Public Schools Teacher Report. It includes information from about 678 school districts, about 66 percent of the ones in Texas. The districts that responded to the survey represent about 91 percent of the state's teacher.

    Some of the numbers:

    $47,305 - The weighted average salary in responding districts. It was up 2.4 percent from the 2007-2008 number.

    $34,252 - The average starting salary for a new teacher. The average starting salary in districts with more than 10,000 students was about $8,000 higher than that.


    35k brah, not 55k, and 43k at the very very most. If 55k was starting salary in a state like Texas, teachers would be flocking there.

    x2! I finished college last year, and see some of my fellow classmates ballin' beyond their means by buying houses, expensive cars, nice loft/apartment, etc.

    I just shake my head b/c I know they're going to get hit with a real big dose of reality when their bills hit the ceiling.

    And honestly if you could stay with your parents for a year or two and just save a couple of years salary you'd be golden. You'll have a really nice nest egg, if things ever got tough to fall back on.

    The average starting salary for my profession is around $105,000 annual.

    I plan on being a Plastic Surgeon PA

    The Texas Association of School Boards and Texas Association of School Administrators have released the 2008-2009 Salaries and Benefits in Texas Public Schools Teacher Report. It includes information from about 678 school districts, about 66 percent of the ones in Texas. The districts that responded to the survey represent about 91 percent of the state's teacher.

    Some of the numbers:

    $47,305 - The weighted average salary in responding districts. It was up 2.4 percent from the 2007-2008 number.

    $34,252 - The average starting salary for a new teacher. The average starting salary in districts with more than 10,000 students was about $8,000 higher than that.


    35k brah, not 55k, and 43k at the very very most. If 55k was starting salary in a state like Texas, teachers would be flocking there.


    Well I plan on working at Irving Isd. I live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. I am currently Interning there, working in a after school care environment for an Elementary. Here is the Salary schedule for 09-10. They have had a steady increase of around 2k a year.

    Irving ISD
    http://www.irvingisd.net/pdf_files/s...20Schedule.pdf

    Everywhere else in the DFW area is around 45k-48k starting. Luckily I have my Bilingual Certification knocked out already, which will increase 2k. According to a teacher friend that works at Irving Isd.

    Also, I have a gf and her projected income is around 55k-65k as well.


    Side question: What is your/will be projected income when you graduate or at the time being? How do you currently live?


    Please keep it serious brahs.
    52k is a good middle class salary brah. combined w/ a spouse around the same salary and you wouldnt have any problems with making ends meet and still being able to do some luxury stuff as well. nothing to frown upon at all


    Supposed to start at 76k as an outpatient physical therapist working for someone but i want my own clinic so who knows. Currently I have a pretty well of family paying for school/rent/cars etc but they still make me pay for luxury stuff and hold a job.
    BA, IFPA, ACE, NSCA CPT, NASM and now --->CSCS<---- woot!

    The Cost of living in Texas is fairly low compared to other states. I know My uncle bought a house in Denton, for $140k. It is around 2k sq ft. 4 bedroom's 3 baths... He is an engineer, his wife doesn't work. Anways, the area of the house is up and coming. Land was about 40k for the house.

    I can't remember if it was teaching or nursing but I remember hearing that in texas they buy you a house if you sign a 5 year contract with a division. I'm 90% sure it was teaching. Look around. really tho, 55k goes a long way in texas as long as you dont live in houston or dallas.

    Depends on where you are. Somewhere in the midwest, you'd probably be fine. Here in New York, you'd barely be able to survive.

    same here in houston. 55k is great here, but in california or NYC, the cost of living is nuts.

    55k is liveable but you really cant do much. Rent, tax, food, everything costs more here in the Bay Area.

    I can't even buy a decent 2 BR Condo or 3 BR House without crippling my finances and I make a lot more than that.
