About Franchesca Warren

For fifteen years I taught English/Language Arts in two urban districts in Georgia and Tennessee. When I was in the classroom, I was increasingly frustrated with decisions being made about public education from people who were not in the classroom. In 2012 after my school was threatened with a reduction in force, I decided to start a blog about what it was really like to teach in public schools. In the last four years, I've helped grow The Educator's Room to the premiere source for resources, tools, and strategies for all things teaching and learning.

According to Forbes Magazine,  The salary survey at  shows that average salary for teachers at all levels in Hawaii is $49,292 which is slightly above the average in the country. While $49,000 may be a great starting teacher salary in some parts, in Hawaii where a gallon of milk can cost upwards of $7, this may not be enough. Minus the gorgeous beaches, the state ranks dead last in the “salary comfort index,” probably due to Hawaii’s high cost of living.
