At $54,264, the Delaware average teacher salary for the '05-'06 school year ranked 11th among the nation. With school counseling salaries typically being $5,000 to $10,000 more per year than teacher salaries, the Delaware school counseling career is quite lucrative.

"We will continue our successful Student Excellence Equals Degree, or SEED, scholarship program with a recommended $689,000, and I am recommending $132.7 million for ongoing public school construction projects in 10 districts throughout Delaware"
