Stolik, again...please know..
jobs are few and far between. A teacher friend that I know ended up working at a children's playtime activity center during the summer making minimum wage.

Not a good time to be moving to Charlotte. Wait until things improve.

well, regarding coming to Charlotte, my timing would be around summer time 2011, and with today's economy, I don't think anybody is doing much hiring these days, but anyhow, I guess I have the luxury of sitting back and waiting to see what happens.

what about the Raleigh area? any better/different there?

I think that in the long run either ESL or biology (general science) would offer you good choices. We have a large immigrant population here and as well as a dearth of science and math teachers. The combo might serve you well in a middle or high school.

There are two ESL college level programs in Charlotte in addition to CMS. They do not pay as well as CMS, but you could try them if you are desperate: ELTI at UNC Charlotte and Central Piedmont Community College. Teaching at ELTI requires a lot of prep, but you would have co-operative students.
