You'll be able to find general information about any career at this website: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ Once there, search (box at upper right) for teacher and then start making choices. Do you want to research preschool teachers? High school teachers? Or what? You'll have to make some choices, and you'll need to keep in mind that this is a nationwide website. The details of salary, benefits, etc., will be generalized or averaged.
If you can be really specific -- such as a teacher of ESL or math or science or special education (or ??) in Los Angeles Unified School District -- then you can do a much more detailed job of researching. Go here: www.lausd.net and then go through the Employment menu. You'll be looking for Certificated positions.
