On another thread this topic was brought up and I thought... What a great question. I think I will post it. What does your job market look like for teachers in your state? I currently live in Texas. The market here is definitely better than last year. Teaching positions have been available in just about all the major districts. Even the smaller districts have felt some growth. The market is not as strong as 5 years ago... but the job market is WAY up from last year.
