    Hey there,

    I am looking at moving to Denver next year and was wondering what the job market was like out there. I currently live in Dayton, OH and it is nearly impossible to land a job here. I have looked online at Denver Public and see many jobs available, but would like to hear the reality.

    Thanks

    Katrina

    The Denver Public Schools have somewhat of a poor reputation. Having said that I'm sure it would be "relatively" easy to get a teaching position there..... Good luck......

    I don't know how hard it is to get a job in DPS, but keep your options open. Aurora Public Schools, Cherry Creek PS, Douglas County PS, Mapleton PS. Those are all school districts relatively near Denver. My uncle has taught in DPS for 25 years and doesn't have a lot to say about it. There is also a wide range of schools in DPS, Major. Some of the highest performing schools are in Colorado and some of the best teachers are teach in those schools.

    As of March 2010, there have been massive budget cuts here and hundreds of teachers have been laid off. Denver is not the place to look for a teaching job at the moment.
