depends on what you teach, how many students you teach, and how well- by various measures- you do your job. personally, i think if you have over & above a masters to teach virtually any subject in K thru Middle School, that's a waste of education. if you then expect the taxpayers to lavishly reward you for that educational overkill, they're getting hosed. if you're teaching advanced computer skills or other hard sciences in high school, that's another story. in short, your multiple degrees shouldn't mean jack if it's not what the students, parents, & taxpayers can justify for their investment.
