It means 'a thousand"
5K = 5000
K is a Greek prefix meaning 1000.
In monetary terms, 5K is 5000 of whatever unit of money is being referred to.
In distance terms, 5K is 5 kilometers (a kilometer being 1000 meters).
$5K USD/month = $5000 per month or approximately $1250 USD per week. A very nice salary, especially for a teacher.
Do move your post to Business & Finance>Personal Finance. It's currently in Sports>Running (because 5K is a very common foot race distance).

Origin is that running 5K means running 5 kilometres, or 5,000 metres. 1000 metres equals 1 kilometer.
You Americans are getting the metric system foisted upon you!
