Teacher Salaries in Seattle: Up 10%?
TeacherPortal's world HQ is in sunny Seattle, Washington, so it was great to read this article today: Seattle Teachers Receiving Raises!
The article goes on to tell you that Seattle teachers will receive 9-10% raises, and that Seattle teachers with master's degrees and experience could make as much as $79,716 in 2009. (More evidence that a master's degree means more money.) It also talks about how the Bellevue, Washington school district raises impacted the Seattle raises, since they're based on other data in Washington.
It's interesting to see how one district can impact another, raising teacher salaries across the state.
