    Just had to share... I have had not one but THREE job offers today in Clark County School District. My phone has been ringing off the hook. I took a first grade position, and I could not be more excited. :D :) If you are looking still, and are willing to relocate - CCSD is the place to be! ;):p

    I am reporting on the 19th! They wanted me to come on the 14th, but it's not possible. So, the principal pulled some strings for me. ;)

    Lots of luck. You are going to need it. Nevada school districts aren't very good to work for.

    At this point I really think any new teacher will be very happy with any teaching job in any district! I know I would be, however I can't relocate. I live in a great school cluster where my own children are flourishing. Unfortunately it is also very hard to land a teaching job anywhere within a reasonable commute. I am not willing to chance too long of a commute, especially here in Atlanta! Sometimes traveling a regular 30 minute route can take 1 1/2 hours!

    The district has received a lot of grant money and reallocated other funds in order to reduce class sizes. There has also been a fair amount of restructuring within the district administration, and that always causes some people to leave. Most people (including the school board and the union, who rarely agree with each other) are pretty excited about the new superintendent and his vision. Besides that, there are the normal problems that plague any large district (salaries, benefits, evaluations, etc.) and the fact that teachers are leaving the profession everywhere, not just here.

    CCSD is the 5th largest school district in the nation. What they're hiring this year amounts to less than 10% of the staff.

    Thanks so much, everyone! I am so excited! I found a condo, and have begun to pack up my things.

    Believe me when I say nothing could be worse than the district I worked in here before I was laid off. And, I am just happy to be in a PUBLIC school, rather than a charter school (where I could be fired at will.)
