Hi everyone! I'm a 22 year old female who just graduated from college. I'm looking to teach elementary school (K-3) in just about any large city in the southeast US. I would prefer a coastal state and a place with low cost of living, considering both my fiance and I will be teachers. My fiance would like to live in a city with a professional sports team, if possible. I'll go just about anywhere but love the southeast, love the beach and would love to be somewhere where I wouldn't have to fight tooth and nail for a job teaching elementary school! Any suggestions?

Forgot to mention two really important things...I want to be in a relatively big city, where there's a lot going on, since we're still young and I want to teach in an urban district, working with at-risk children. Thanks again!

Since you want professional sports and beaches in the Southeast, that's pretty much limiting your choices to Florida: Jacksonville, Miami, and Tampa. There's certainly no shortage of jobs in any of those cities for those wishing to work with at-risk children.

I personally prefer Tampa, it's generally more affordable than Miami and not quite as congested. But Miami definitely has more nightlife.

You might also want to check out New Orleans. They desperately need teachers in New Orleans, and the city isn't too terribly far from beaches.

Chicago- We really need GOOD inner city teachers. Jobs should be available.

I have the perfect place for you --Jacksonville, FL. It seems to match your criteria pretty well and the job outlook is good there. Not as congested as TB or Miami Beach.


Why they gotta be at-risk?
