    Yes, I know that may be an oxymoron, but what public school districts tend to need more teachers out there? I checked out TRD, and looked at some of their districts:

    Arlington, VA
    Baltimore
    Houston
    Texas border

    What else have you guys heard of? Teachers tend to stick not too far from home, so their must be some pockets out there.

    My family is always telling me that Northern Virginia -- not just Arlington, but Fauquier County and its neighbors -- are always in need of teachers, pay well, and are nice communities. Although I think they may just want me to move back East :)

    To add to what ms. irene said, I know that other counties in Northern VA that have been in need are Fairfax and Loudon. I went to a teacher recruitment for Indianapolis Public Schools in February and judging by the stuff they've been sending me since, they still have high needs in a lot of areas.

    There are some desperate districts surrounding Raleigh, NC. My school has classes that have been taught by a substitute all year.

    I know my area... central Ohio is not struggling for teachers lol. Columbus was actually given the title the best place to be a teacher in America. It took into account pay vs the cost of living here.

    About Baltimore...

    It was "revealed" a few months ago that Baltimore City PS is about 100 million in debt (a mix of being over-budget, an increase in salaries paid due to a new contract and state budget cuts thanks to our new governor). 120 district level positions/jobs had to be cut in order to make a dent in that amount and most of these people are former teachers or Admin who left the classroom for a nice, cushy position at the Board of Ed. Thus, these people are being told that if they want a job next year; they will have to move back to being school-based staff (in some capacity) and that until these people are settled, BCPSS will not be hiring any new people.

    Look elsewhere.
