NEW MEXICO ANNUAL SALARY INFORMATION

New Mexico Three Tier Licensure System

https://webnew.ped.state.nm.us/bureaus/licensure/how-to-apply/secondary-7-12/

Level 1 → Exam or fewer than 3 full school years’ experience → $36,000

All first year educators will be issued a Level I Provisional Teacher License, a 5-year non-renewable license. A Level I teacher must advance to Level II by completing a dossier or advancing via summative evaluation application (please speak to your school district about advancing). The Level I teacher may advance to Level II after the third year of experience, but must advance to Level II by the end of the fifth year of experience at Level I. If the educator did not teach during a portion of the 5 years, they may submit a request to extend their Level I license for the unused time. A maximum of 3 extensions may be requested. Their extended licenses will then be issued as a 1D “limited” license. This is simply an indicator to the licensure bureau the educator received an extension to ensure that the 3 extension limit has not been exceeded.

Level 2 → 3 – 5 years’ experience → $44,000

Level 3 → 6 or more years’ experience → Master’s Degree/National Board Certificate → $54,000
