New Mexico Masters in Education

A master’s degree is not only important in becoming a better teacher, but is also a requirement for Level III licensure as a teacher in New Mexico. This top level of New Mexico’s three-tier system entitles qualified teachers to a guaranteed minimum salary of $50,000, as well as additional leadership opportunities within the school system.

The state of New Mexico presently ranks near the bottom in both elementary math and reading. In addition, more than 43 percent of the population of New Mexico speaks Spanish. Thus, there is a huge need for bilingual teachers in the state, especially at the high-school level.
