Can anyone tell me?
How funny... I asked the same thing a while ago:http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/showthread.php?t=31080&highlight=vegas
Due to a severe staffing shortage, New Orleans needs 150 new teachers for the 07-08 school year. Go to nolapublicschools.net to check it out.
The places that I know of hiring in my state are places like inner city, low income schools. My guess is you can always find a job in these areas.
Funny- I just saw this article in Scholastic's Instructor magazine. Worth checkin' out.
Just thought of something else- oversea jobs seem to be "hot".
Texas - particurally Houston, Dallas, Austin, or San Antonio areas. All of these suburban ares are rapidly growing. I'm not sure if you want to go to New Orleans or an inner city area. You don't know what kind of school you'll be getting if you go there.
We got kids from the New Orleans area after Katrina. They were really low. You couldn't help but be sorry for them. They would tell stories about their schools. It was really sad because we could tell their school system had major flaws. I'm not trying to be mean. I just want to give you the facts and sugar coat things,
I would definitely agree with the Houston area. My district opened a new high school this year, is opening a new elementary next year, and a new elementary and middle school for 08-09 school year. The suburban areas are growing like crazy around here and smaller districts surrounding Houston have some great schools and starting pay isn't bad either (my district starts at $40,600). Worth checking out if you are willing to relocate. Thats what I did when I started my teaching career 7 years ago. There were no jobs in the midwest, so I moved south and I love it here!!!
Sorry... I meant NOT sugar coat things.
