Hello all,

New to the forum, so I greet you.

I am math teacher down here in Colorado for the moment, but my wife wants to study art therapy up at Marylhurst University, and with me being a math teacher, we just wanted to know what the general consensus was on how it might be to get a math teaching job up there. We love the area, and would love to be able to move up there and make it, but I've been reading all about Oregon's (and more particularly Portland's) unemployment rate, and it's rather depressing. Any help or suggestions? Thanks for your time!

You'd probably get better results from posting this in the Portland forum. Several teachers and prospective teachers have posted there recently; their consensus was that things look bleak. There's little or no hiring going on.
