If you have three years or more of teaching experience, to get a Colorado license it is a bit of paperwork. Start on it NOW! It took several months for me to get my license. You will have a stronger position if you have a license in hand before you start interviewing.

I was expecting 10 years to transfer but 5-7 years Geez! I have 27 years of teaching experience. How difficult is it to find teaching postions in the Littleton area?

There are several school districts in the Littleton area. Littleton Public Schools serves the city of Littleton. It, like many districts, has cut teachers due to budget reasons last year. Jefferson County Schools serves an area immediately west of the city of Littleton. The area is unincorporated, but has Littleton addresses. They may or may not be hiring, but the possibility exists that you would get a job that is far away from Littleton, as the district covers a large area. The same is true for Douglas County Schools and Cherry Creek Schools. Both districts have schools that serve parts of Littleton, but most of the districts' schools are not near Littleton. They may hire a few teachers, but not many.

I'm guessing you have done more research and are in shock at what you would be paid as a teacher in Colorado with 5-7 years vs. 27 years where you are...people rail about teachers being overpaid, but that certainly isn't the case in CO.

The salary schedules for most if not all districts are online. For Littleton a teacher with 5-7 years makes $40-45K depending on education, and that is actually higher than some other districts.

I'm moving out there in a few days and my intention is to apply online, but also drop off resumes. Can't hurt.
Considering moving to Colorado in the next couple years. I teach elementary level and hold a MA. I see most of these posts were at least 5 years ago. Curious... How did it turn out?

You may want to start a new post ... I think many people ask a question and never ever come back. That being said, my niece (27 y.o.) just got her Masters in Teaching had two job offers in the Aspen area. I believe they were somewhat entry level, one was a private school for not much money and the other was public school.
