Where Do Danvers Teacher Salaries Rank in Massachusetts?

A new report by Boston Business Journal ranks school districts by teacher salary.

The average teacher in Danvers earned $72,622 in 2013, which is ranked 127th in the state, according to a report by Boston Business Journal.

That is a 0% increase over 2012 and an 12% jump since 2008 when the average teacher salary was $64,693 in Danvers.

The Concord-Carlisle school system had the highest average teacher salary at $95,947 while the lowest paid was the western Massachusetts town of Florida, which paid an average of $35,497 in 2013.

Here were the average teacher salaries in other North Shore communities in 2013:

Hamilton-Wenham -- $77,909

Lynnfield -- $75,493

Salem -- $72,467

Peabody -- $71,125

Lynn -- $69,379

Middleton -- $66,446

Beverly -- $59,716


"There's really not much consistency among local towns and cities when it comes to teacher salaries and employment. Some communities are spending more than ever, while others are below where they were before the last recession,” reported Boston Business Journal.

One thing that can play a large part in the average salary is the number of veteran and new teachers. For instance, newer teachers make less money and may skew the average lower for a district.
