Though one might not immediately think of six-figure salaries when considering education careers, they're out there. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the top 25 percent of elementary and secondary school education administrators--jobs that require a master's or doctoral degree--earned mean annual wages of more than $107,220 in 2010. In a 2011 survey by Chicago's Daily Herald, the 150 highest-paid teachers responding to their salary query earned mean annual wages of $141,327.

Many teachers work more than 40 hours a week and supplement their income with a second job during the summer or with coaching or extracurricular work during the school year.
