Hi Everyone,

My husband and I are seriously considering relocating. We are looking at Maryland as an option. I was wondering if anyone can give me any idea of how competitive the teacher job market is? Is there housing available? Cost of living? What might be better areas to live in than others? Actually, any advice you can forward would be greatly appreciated.

We currently reside in NJ and things are NOT good in out state, so we are exploring all options.

thanks

I have no idea how competitive the teaching market is. I guess it would depend on the specific district. Housing is very expensive in the areas closer to DC. The suburbs of DC are very, very different than the rest of the state. You'll have to be more specific about the areas you are looking at.

Prince George's County schools typically have openings. It is a county with significant percentages of children participating in the free lunch program, but it also varies greatly from school to school. We love our neighborhood elementary and middle schools: University Park Elementary and Hyattsville Middle. Most of the children in our upper-class, affluent town of University Park go to the magnet high school program at Eleanor Roosevelt High School.

The areas of P.G. County, but inside the beltway, AND North of D.C. that you may want to consider are as follows:
Historic Hyattsville
University Park
College Park
Berwyn Heights
Greenbelt
Cheverly

All of these areas have reasonnable rents and crime stats for the region. In any of these schools you'll likely find a mix of races and socio-economic statuses.
