Science is a discipline concerned with the systematic study of the physical universe. This lofty subject is often broken down into a number of subcategories that are easier to digest, such as astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, and physics. Science teachers often specialize in one of these particular topics. Because the study of science begins in elementary school and continues through high school and beyond, science teachers may work in a variety of academic settings with an average salary of $38,000, according to Simply Hired.
