We are a Military family relocating to St.Pete/Clearwater area and I was looking for some advice. See we want the usual things good schools for our kids, good community atmosphere and my wife being a Middle School teacher where would be a good place for her to find work in a good school. I've heard some good things about the Land o Lakes area. What would a realistic commute time be to St. Pete area from LOL area? Looking at real estate ranging from 200,000 to 300,000 , is there other great school areas with good community atmosphere in the price range like the LOL area? Thanks for any and all advice...

Driving distance I think too far to St Pete to LOL ,unfortunately housing less than $300,000 is practically impossible unless you go further out from the city of Tampa and St Pete. Kinda long drive too but there are brand new 3-4 BR townhomes selling in Tarpon Springs which is a lovely little city ( Greek sponge diving history here).
Lower priced homes generally in bad areas. Some of the Dunedin, Clearwater area are OK but again pricey.
