There are going to be at least 6 openings in my school building alone for next year. I know in a lot of places there are hundreds of applicants for one job. Here, we usually only have 1-2 applicants for each job (small town). If anyone's willing to move (Idaho), I can give you contact information for my district. Home prices have drastically dropped in the past 3 years, so it's a little cheaper to live here now. I don't know how many people they'll end up hiring, but it's worth a try! They will probably start hiring after registration on August 6th. Both of our special ed teachers will probably be leaving, so we will definitely need special ed teachers! But there should also be 2nd and 3rd grade openings in my building, along with other openings in town.
