    If only I could relocate! I know another poster works in Clark Co and she's always saying they are in need of teachers.

    I am sorry to say, but that really isn't true anymore. The freeze is still on in Clark County. This is in all areas for the most part and even includes high needs. Also, out of state people are very low on the pole. I have also heard that the district is expecting low numbers. It has been rumored that long term sub/vacancy positions will be replaced by surplus teachers after count day in September because of low enrollment. Don't come the Clark County if you need a job anytime soon.

    I think it's important to hear from educators who are in the area-- or around it. It's nice to think that someone who really knows will tell us the truth--- I know some places just advertise without really having the positions available.

    I would stress though--- as I'm sure others would--- to at least try. Get your name out there and see what happens. I don't think I would have ever found the position I now have if it wasn't recommended to me to at least try contacting them and following up. :)

    As enticing as that looks, I could just not move to Vegas. I get tired of that place after being there 3 days...the heat...no thanks!
    My uncle lives in Chandler, AZ and he said they are in need of teachers around that area...it has been growing for the past several years.

    There's a lot to say for living in an area that you can actually "stand" and not just for a job - I too couldn't live in Vegas it feels to chaotic to me personally but I know many love it and thrive there!

    The best bet is to try and take a working vacation to the place or places that you may be interested in moving to and that say they are in dire need of teachers and then you can see for yourself if it's a good fit for you.
