Depending on where they work, P.E. teachers can often earn more than the median if they coach sports outside of regular school hours. Perhaps the biggest predictor of a P.E. teacher's wages is whether he works in a public school. The average salary for private school teachers is about $36,000, considerably less than their public school counterparts. A large reason for this wage gap, according to The Atlantic, is that private schools typically offer a better work environment for teachers.
