It depends on where you live. Starting out where I live teachers make $39,000 per year. If you have your Masters where I live it equals an extra $5,000 every year.

I am in California and a BA would not be enough to be a teacher. However, if you completed the credential requirements, you can expect to start at 30-50,000. In my area, we start close to 40,000.

Just keep this in mind- if you do not have a continuing contract (from year to year) you may want to stay with just the bachelors degree. If you did not have that continuing contract, having a masters would be a detriment. Typically teachers with more education get paid more. Would you, as an administrator, hire the teacher that can teach secondary science with a bachelors degree, or the teacher that can teach the same thing but costs more to do it? Its a sucky thing to have to think about but until you have the job for sure, you may want to keep yourself as employable as possible :)
