Average Swampscott Teacher Salary $75K, Report Says

The figure was included in a new list.

The average teacher in the Swampscott school system last year earned $75,209 — the 88th highest figure in the state, according to a new report by the Boston Business Journal.

The Concord-Carlisle school system came in first with an average teacher salary of $95,947. The community of Florida in western Massachusetts came in last with $35,497.

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

I have a lot of respect for the vast majority of teachers in town. They are hard working, responsive and do a great job with our kids. A lot of stuff is beyond their control. They have to teach to the MCAS, they have to deal with the spoilt entitled kids and nightmare helicopter parents. My main issue is the few bad, mediocre, apples are kept around because the union is so powerful and the town leadership is not equipped to deal with them effectively. Teachers should be well paid but the minority of ineffective ones should be fired.

Good and bad. Some of my kids Swampscott teachers were top notch. Others so-so, and at least 1 was terrible.
