Hello! I am researching several states right now to try to find a good place to relocate as a teacher. My husband and I both teach in Colorado and the outlook for teaching is not good. So, we are investigating other options.

Does anybody know:

- if any cities, districts, etc. anticipate hiring teachers in 2011-12?
- what the relationship is between average salary and cost of living?
- if districts will accept previous experience years toward pay scale?
- if there are any outstanding districts that I should focus on looking at?
- when the typical hiring season begins?

or any other information you feel would help me with my search. I have never been to NC so I am flying blind. I will probably visit whichever state seems most promising in my research but can't afford to visit all the states I am looking into, so any help is appreciated!

Pretty sure Durhan and Guliford County are hiring, depending on your certs...

Start here

Work 4 NC Schools

Salary is low and benefits paid for employee ONLY, family coverage is paid by teacher.

With a signed form, DPI will accept previous experience (the more the better!) I brought almost 9 years and still below $40K...salary is dictated by the STATE and the same everywhere. Teachers are state employees..

Plus side is COL is generally lower.

Districts closer to major cities are more desireable and hiring season starts July through August for most districts.
