(KSL News) -- The nation's teachers are making a little more money that they used to, but what about teachers in Utah?

According to an annual report released by the American Federation of Teachers, the average teacher's salary rose three percent in 2002-2003 to $45,800.

But the outlook isn't all good for Utah teachers. When it comes to average teacher salary, the state ranks 38th in the nation, at just over $38,000. That's more than seven thousand dollars less than the national average.
