We are moving to Colorado in about a month and my wife is looking for a kindergarten teaching position. She has sent in her fingerprint card and just finished app for Colorado teaching license. CDE told her she is ok to start looking for jobs while her application is in review. She has 20 years exp. teaching kindergarten and has a masters degree. My wife has looked on all the district websites and have only found about 3 kindergarten positions available. Does anyone know if more positions will come available. With my wife having 20 years teaching exp. will the CDE make my wife take any of those test after review of her Colorado teaching license application? We are prob going to get asked what part of Colorado are we moving to lol I guess we will have to go wherever she can get a job. Any help on jobs would be very appreciative. One more question

There may be more available, there may not be. My girlfriend recently secured a job in JeffCo School District from out of state and it looks like there are more openings now than there were a month back. Kindergarten is too specific, IMHO. She should be open to any elementary (K-6) position to start with in an area you want to live and a district she wants to teach in, then go from there.

She should have received a 1 year temp certificate while they review her background before issuing a full K-6 licence.

She's looked on all the district websites? There are 179 districts! Where in Colorado? Job postings are updated daily/weekly - keep looking!

It depends where you are looking- I live on the front range and teaching jobs here can be very competitive. I taught in Boulder (Kindergarten) last year and was extremely lucky to find a position as a first-year teacher. I am teaching in Loveland now. If you live on the front range you have a lot of options for districts, but some are better than others.

Kindergarten jobs tends to post later because they don't know enrollment numbers until the end of summer. I got both of my teaching positions in late summer. There are also many full-day programs out here which is good.
