CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) — A teacher in South Carolina earns an average annual salary of about $48,600. Many of them even use their own personal income to supply their classrooms.

Suffice it to say, you don’t necessarily get rich off of teaching, which is why educators across the country are walking out of their classrooms demanding an increase in pay.

Danny Kofke is a special education teacher and the author of a newly released book ‘The Wealthy Teacher: Lessons for Prospering on a School Teacher’s Salary’.

Kofke has also written an accompanying e-book ‘Save Over $30,000 This Year’.

He stopped by FOX 24 News Now to chat about his new book and share important tips on how teachers can thrive on a modest income until salaries begin to catch up.
