Believe it or not, teachers are paid more so on the amount of research they do, not as much on how well they teach.
But they do get paid very well per hour worked. Think about it, if they teach 2 classes, its about 4-6 hours per week of lecturing, plus maybe like 3 hours a week of office hours. Then other than that, just marking 2-3 tests for every six months (with help from TA's) and winter break, and 4 months off in the summer. And they get over $100 G's for that!! Not bad at all.......
