Hi! My family and I live in a really bad area and are hoping to make a major move (we said this last year, too). We know in a general area where we'd like to be (totally different state). I have been applying in that state and the current state where we are living. We would like to move as soon as we can get the money and sell our home .. that may be a few months. Currently, I am on unemployment (I was a long term sub last year for the entire year and was not hired...the teacher came back) and working part-time. I am eligible to get the unemployment until November. At this point, it does not look like I'll get a teaching job in my current state that I live in. So... should I continue to look in my current state or start looking in the state we want to move in? How does one navigate this. I know where I want to go will have jobs but I have no idea where to live. Can I be certified in two states? Do I continue to collect unemployment and not take a teaching job if we know we will be moving? I am so confused! I 'll post separately about the area we are looking in. Thank you!
