    I don't know where you're looking in NY, if anywhere in particular, but I've worked in Buffalo and Syracuse and they're both always, always in need of bilingual teachers. I like Syracuse fine but love Buffalo and want to get back there someday. I think it's one of those places that most people don't think of as being wonderful but it really is. The hiring process at Buffalo Public is not very transparent at all, but that Spanish certification would definitely help. The pay is not great, but the cost of living is very good. Just throwing it out there!

    Do you speak Spanish? Both Buffalo and Syracuse's application ask if you speak any languages other than English so I think even that's a plus considering the growing Spanish-speaking population in both districts (and the number of Spanish-speaking parents). Even as a gen ed teacher, my job would have been a TON easier if I spoke Spanish and I think administration is definitely aware of that.

    @Leaborb192, I thought you had strong feelings about how terrible it was to teach in AZ?

    Good luck in your interview. :)

    Yes, and I've heard of places that require teachers to give out their phone numbers to students so that they can call and ask about homework any time. Also, ask in a positive way so it doesn't sound like you're worried about it, but you might also want to know about after school requirements to lead things like tutoring and clubs.
