Hi, I'm a teacher living in Chicago and I am considering moving my family to the San Antonio area.
My question....do I have to live in san antonio in order to work there as a teacher?? Can I live in a surrounding suburb?
In Chicago, we have to live in the city.

Thank you!

I don't know if districts still do this, but when I moved down from Illinois, San Antonio ISD paid for my 1 year emergency certificate so I could take the tests for Texas and get my Texas certificate.

If you need any help or advice, let me know. My wife and I both taught in the Chicago 'burbs for a few years before moving back to Texas.

Yep, you can live anywhere. A friend of my parents teaches at O'Connor High past Loop 1604 off Bandera Rd but she drives 22 miles to her home in North Central SA south of Loop 410 (a different school district).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I've heard is that the only drawback is that your children can not go to the same school you teach at unless you live in the same school district. For example, if you live in SAISD and teach in NISD, your children would have to go to school in the SAISD district. There was a small "scandal" a year or two ago where teachers and administrators in NISD had their children enrolled in their school even though they lived in another ISD.

Exceptions to every rule...always remember that.

It's about who you know and who can keep their mouths shut.

I have heard a different variation to your second sentence.
