I am currently a student teacher in Secondary Social Studies in Pennsylvania. Due to the complete lack of demand for these teachers in my area, I am looking to relocate to Arizona. I have done quite a bit of research on school districts in the areas I would chose to live. I have also visited several times, so I know the area well. I am visiting again for a week in March. Unfortunately, only one job fair will occur at that time, but it is better than nothing. I have noticed online job postings for at least three other positions I will be eligible for after May. Here are my questions: Should I contact school districts I am interested in, asking them what their policy on out-of-state candidates is? I already realize I will have to apply for a reciprocal teaching license for AZ. Should I request a meeting or tour of their buildings since I will be in their area? I do know that I should contact as many districts as possible, but what should I say to them? I want to leave a good impression and show them that I am 100% committed to relocating. Does anybody have any tips for going about doing this?
