    This is my last effort to find a teaching position. I can't spend my whole life waiting. Does anyone know of any places in the country in need of elementary teachers? I know there's slim pickings out there but I think I'm willing to go anywhere. I just want to teach!

    I think we all wonder the same thing.

    Long Island, NY aka the home of the world's largest surplus of teachers looking for jobs.

    Hi and welcome from Nassau County!!!

    Oh, I'm so sorry--- the job market here is brutal!!!

    Have you tried all 121 districts? The OLAS site? The Diocese of Rockville Centre? Non-catholic schools (LI Lutheran, Friends Academy...)

    I'm not sure about the rest of the country, but it's slim picking indeed around here!

    There's some slim-picking jobs in my district, anyone can PM me for a link.

    What about Brooklyn? Any jobs there? I'd love to go to Brooklyn someday. One can dream, right?

    The problem(s) with Brooklyn are that:
    a) it's part of the mammoth NYC district-- the whole city,all 5 boros, are in the same district.
    b) as with any city, there are good parts and no-so-good parts
    c) NYC has the same glut of teachers as Long Island.

    I can't wrap my brain around that...I always assumed you'd apply to the borough you liked.

    I'm a fan of Park Slope, myself....

    My grandmother lived in Park Slope until she died in 1986, right down the block from Prospect Park. That was before it became "gentrified" and was just a pretty tough area for a 93 year old lady to live by herself. But grandma was smart. She always had candy for the little kids; when they became teenagers they looked out for "Grandma Polly."

    Try Allen County in SC or Horry County in SC. These districts are usually looking for teachers year round. All the best! :)

    It took me 5 years to get into a public school. I worked mostly PT in Catholic Schools usually holding 2-3 jobs to make ends meet. It's great that you can relocate. The job market isn't great here in Ohio but here are a few links that have lots of postings. There seems to be many openings with the charter schools around here like National Heritage and White Hat Management. Good Luck!!! :hugs:

    I read in an article somewhere, don't remember what article, that West Virginia has a teacher shortage, but low pay was the main reason for that. Hang in there and good luck!

    Norfolk and Porstmouth Virginia (in Southeastern Virginia) seem to always be hiring. Don't consider it if you aren't willing to teach inner city, though.

    A general rule of thumb here is that the tougher the school, the easier it is to get a job. The better the school, the harder it is to get a job because very few people leave these positions.

    Good luck in your search.
