My boyfriend and I are considering moving to the SF Bay Area... Berkeley to be exact. What can you tell me about the area? How about teaching in the area? I am an ESL teacher working in Brooklyn, NY in an elementary school. I am in a very good school with a strong balanced literacy program. I work with children from around the world and absolutely love the diversity represented there. Though I am in a good school, though, Im not so crazy about whats going on in NYC -- reorganization, tracking of teachers, emphasis on testing (though I know this is happening in the whole city), micromanagement, etc. What is it like teaching in the SF Bay area, or Berkeley? How is the job market in ESL?? What are the demographics like? Any info about living, working, or whatever you fell like lending would be much appreciated?
