The 2014 U.S. state rankings for teachers are out according to Wallet Hub.  As we know teaching is one of the most important jobs in the country molding children into young adults, but it's a profession that is overlooked and the pay isn't so great.  It's also a job that is fulfilling and quite influencing.  I still remember my 1st grade teacher Miss DeLaura to this day.

Some states do better than others in offering teachers better pay, student-teacher ratio and work environments than others.  The list provided by Wallet Hub ranks each state by these and other factors.  Here's a look at some of the rankings...
