Default Career Fairs for Teachers in NH?

Are there any job fairs for educators in Southern New Hampshire? My husband and I really want to relocate from Flagstaff, AZ, and I'd like to do everything I can to get a job teaching high school English for next school year (2013-2014).

Not New Hampshire but teaching overseas.
Pay is usually pretty good.

sgthoskins - There are many factors. My husband and I feel as though we have reached the top of the glass ceiling so to speak in Flagstaff, and we are just getting started with our life as a family. We dream of more for ourselves and our son. I am a teacher and Arizona does not support education. In this community in particular, public education struggles greatly. I know, I know, teachers all over the country feel unappreciated. But it is different here. Teachers in Arizona are being asked to work in increasingly difficult situations for less. Life, of course, is not all about money. However, Flagstaff is a tourist town - a resort community. Therefore, there are many people who contribute to certain aspects of our economy, while not putting money into the education of the people who live in the area they enjoy. The people native to this region have very little to begin with, leaving much less for the education of their children. When I first came to Arizona (from NJ), I was aware of the difficulty here. The population of our community is marginalized to say the least. I was idealistic and thought I could help. Change the system, reach a few kids, make a difference. Lately, I feel defeated. I feel as though it cannot happen here. The system is broken and I can't fix it. I'm looking for a place where I can feel inspired again. Inspired to help others and learn more about life. I'm hoping New Hampshire can be that place for me.

Of the teachers I know in New England, Massachusetts is MUCH more public education friendly than NH. They spent more per student, teachers make more with better benefits and there are a lot more positions in MA then there are in NH.

Yeah it's definitely much easier to be a hack public school teacher with union backing in MA than it is in NH.

If Arizona does not support education then New Hampshire hates it. We have some of the most underfunded school systems in the country. I strongly advise you to look elsewhere for a teaching job unless you like to volunteer your time and work.

Actually, Arizona literally ranks 50th in the country for the LEAST amount of money spent per student in public school at $6,400 per student (in 2010-2011). The national average at that time was over $10,000. Anywhere I go in the country would be better. That is why I'm leaving.
