Hi all,

I am a Spanish teacher in eastern VA who is losing my job due to state/district budget cuts and am considering relocating to the area. I need info on schools (both public and private) that might be hiring an experienced teacher with a Master's who has taught all levels of Spanish. I am somewhat familiar with the area but need to know more info @ if Wake and other districts are having similar budget issues like here or are hiring at all. Prefer to teach HS but open to any decent full time job, even if not teaching. Also would consider comm college teaching. Any info on area employment (especially at UNC, Duke, etc) and housing would be appreciated. Thanks for your responses.

I taught in the WCPSS system for ten years and loved it. There is a strong demand for Spanish teachers. The community college (Wake Tech) has numerous campuses as well.

You need to hear from a teacher about wake county public schools system, hopefully one will post.
It not in a good place right now. Budget cuts last yr, and now $20M cuts to central admin which will mean certain programming. Go to WRALTV for the recent history of what's going on.

You can check out Durham Tech as well as Wake Tech. But again in this economy, there won't be much out there. You can do a search for colleges in this area (NCSU, UNC, Duke, NC Central) and then go to their sites to see what jobs they have.
Sorry, wish I could be more hopeful. You are going to have to do a job search to see if this area has what you need. We are reeling from the recession just like everywhere else! FYI - people who have moved here without a job are not doing well. And so the standard advice is find a job here first.

Definitely Google "wake county school board" and read thoroughly all that's going on right now in this county.

That said, there are other school systems in the area, such as Durham Cty and Johnston Cty. Wake is in the middle of a firestorm right now, though, that will probably last a couple of years.
