    I recently graduated in May with a bachelors in Elementary Education. I currently live in Knoxville, TN and could not get a teaching position for this school year. I am working at a preschool as a teacher, but only getting paid what people get paid at McDonalds. There were freezes on a lot of the teaching positions. I was wondering if anyone knows where there is a need for teachers. I heard that Chicago is in need of teachers, but I don't know if that is true. Please help!!!!!! I have been looking at Minneapolis, Chicago, and Raleigh, NC,. But if you have any information I would be happy to hear it. Thanks for your help.

    I consistently hear about North Carolina needing teachers. I've been contacted by North Carolina schools even though I've specifically stated that I'm not able to relocate. No matter what the recruiters tell you avoid Florida. It seems as though everywhere is having budget cuts. It's a hard time for all right now.

    I have heard Chicago (although they pay well it might put you in a "scary" place), I've also heard Nevada and I lived in Louisiana and they needed teachers. In Louisiana their need is in the deeper Southern areas like New Orleans where they are trying to rebuild after the hurricanes.

    Clark County is currently under a hiring freeze so they aren't hiring for any positions right now, though in the past they have been a place to go.

    Avoid CA...it's not looking very promising here. But I have heard Las Vegas is hiring as well as Arizona. So there are two possibilities for you! :) Good Luck.

    Fayetteville, NC is constantly hiring. Low pay, but also low cost of living.

    Would you consider teaching in Arizona? There is currently a 2nd grade position that just opened this past week in a border town about an hour's drive from Tucson. The pay is among the best in state, the kids are wonderful to teach, and the commute is all freeway (I've been doing the drive for over 20 years, and don't mind it!) There are wonderful places to live between Tucson and Nogales-- Rio Rico, Sahuarita, and Green Valley are all safe, wonderful communities with inexpensive homes to either rent or own.
    If interested, contact Nogales Unified School District Human Resources office. P.S. This position is for 2nd grade classroom at Mary Welty Elementary School (This school had a complete remodel last year and is VERY PRETTY, with large air-conditioned, state of the art rooms.) GOOD LUCK!

    I agree with MAT Grad - Florida's a dead end unless you go to Miami. Miami has an EXTREMELY high cost of living.

    I'm looking to get licensed in NC - don't care where I go as long as I get a job and can put some money away.
