My wife just accepted a position for a job in Washington DC. We are moving over there in two months and we are debating to live in Virginia or Maryland. Which state is better for teachers? Also I am certified to teach social studies in Washington and California. I took the West-E in Washington to get certified and also took the C-SET in California to get certified there. Will I need to take another test in these states? I have 3 1/2 years subbing experience, but only 1 year of teaching experience.
