    Hi Everyone,
    I will be moving this summer to Arizona from NC. I am applying for elementary teaching jobs in Gilbert, Chandler, and Scottsdale. Does anyone know anything about these districts?

    Thanks!

    I don't know much about those districts but I do know that we need teachers here. Check out the district websites for more info.

    Yep what she said. I know in the West Valley (opposite from where you are looking) they are hiring teachers like crazy.

    I currently work in Kyrene School District which has schools in Phoenix, Tempe and Chandler. Overall it's a good school district and they do amazing things with technology. However, I have also heard great things about Chandler School District - I know quite a few teachers who are leaving to teach within that district (and several more who would love to go but they have invested too much time in Kyrene). :rolleyes:

    Kyrene is undergoing some changes in general such as salary schedule (sounds as if they are throwing it out the window). May take them a couple years to catch up to everyone else as far as pay goes. To be honest I would check out Chandler. :p

    Wish I could tell you more but since I don't work for Tempe or Scottsdale School District, I don't want to mislead you.

    You can check out Kyrene and Chandler at the following websites:

    Good luck!!
