I know this is very specific, but any help would be appreciated. We are considering moving to Evergreen, Colorado. I am a teacher and my husband is worried I won't be able to find a job. Anyone know how difficult it is to get into the school district? I am certified to teach elementary, middle school math, k-12 PE. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

In Colorado, schools are on a different hiring deadline. Most jobs are posted in April and May, and nearly every job is filled by early June. Barring a resignation over the summer, the likelihood of getting a job for the start of the 2011-12 school year is highly unlikely. A job may come open in January or a long-term sub position might become available, but that is about it for this coming school year.

Jeffco schools start their school year on Aug. 22. The first day for teachers is probably the 15th. Since Monday is already the 1st, you can see the reason for the early timeline.

Thank you. Sorry I didn't put the timeliness of our move. It will be a couple years, but with the economy I wondered how difficult it is to find a teaching job. There are some states that are still hiring, while others are cutting back and people can not get teaching jobs. I truly appreciate your replies.
Thanks

Default Teacher

My wife is a teacher in Jeffco, and my daughter just graduated and will be looking for work soon. Jeffco is probably better off than some Denver districts, but the reality is, its tough right now. Most schools are looking for ways to cut costs, bigger classes, trying to deal with this whole budget nightmare.

Honestly, you would be better off in Denver with multiple districts to choose from.

Good Luck!
