Hello all, I'm looking for some information on good schools and places to live in the winston-salem area (possibly south along 85 or southeast along 40 as we have friends that live in Mooresville). My husband is interviewing at Wake Forest Med School and we may be moving there from Michigan this summer. I'm looking for good school districts that are in need of elementary teachers. I am currently working in the Michigan National Heritage Academy schools and am also very curious about any information on the NHA schools in that area.

Also, since we will be living on my teachers salary while he goes to med school, can you suggest nice areas to live with cheaper housing? We would prefer to buy (in the $170,000 or less range), but are also willing to rent. Any information or links to sites for this area would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for your help. I know very little about the area, but this forum has been extremely helpful.

Nc is always on the look for good teachers. Our college systems produce so many elementary educators. The problem is keeping them in the areas where they are most needed. Low income areas, that is. The question is are you willing to take the pay cut to land a job? The incentives are what you can take home in your heart knowing you're making an impact. Much like social services

I am a Middle School teacher in Iredell County (Statesville/Iredell School) and live outside of W-S in Yadkin County. My wife teaches elementary school in Yadkin county.

I would stay away from Guilford County (High Taxes/Bad Schools) south of Winston-Salem.

Forsythe county is a great county especially to the West of W-S (Think Clemmons).

There are many teaching jobs available, finding work should not be a problem.

Good Luck!
