We noticed the Boston Globe ran a rather out-of-the-blue list of Massachusetts teacher salaries on its website today, so we checked out the numbers ourselves at the State Department of Education website to see where Wellesley ranked. As is often the case with government numbers, the most recent ones are a tad old (2006-2007), but they’re the best available. Wellesley teachers ranked No. 6 in the state with an average salary of $69,784. Boston was tops with $71,123.
