I am planning on relocating to North Carolina from Virginia and am very interested in the Greensboro & Winston-Salem area. So, I'm planning on definitely applying to Guilford County Public Schools. I will be going in as a first-year teacher with my Masters. I know that many schools are facing economic issues, so I'm curious on how easy/difficult it may be to obtain a job in that school system?

Depends on your endorsements. Elementary? VERY difficult. Middle school and high school is easier if you have a SpEd, math, science endorsements.
If you are SpEd endorsed, you need to be highly qualified in at least one academic content area--preferrably math or science, but English will be good (the more the better) The masters degree may be the albatross that keeps you out. With deep cuts many districts are looking for BRAND NEW grads with bachelors as they are cheaper. Not to say you cannot find a position...

Thank you for your response. I am certified in elementary education, so I'm sure it will be more difficult. Do you think the prospects are about the same for both Guilford and Forsyth counties?

Probably the same through out the state of NC? Be prepared for MORE cuts to be announced in February / March when the proposed budget is released. I have heard it might be easier in NoVA to get a position?
