Hello everyone,
I am getting ready to graduate with my BA in Political Science from a University in Florida. I am currently looking for a change of location and am looking for jobs in teaching. I would like to teach a high school government class and coach volleyball. I am aware of the Florida requirements to become a teacher but I am unaware of any other state's requirements. Can anyone help me with state requirements? Job openings? housing/apartment rates in Houstin and Dallas,I am looking forward to a change from florida and I am looking forward to any help and advice you can give me. I would like a climate that I can experience seasons, not to cold yet not to warm either. I would like to live in a city that has a lot to do, I do not like being bored. I would rather live outside the city that I teach in as well, but not too far. Thank you!

I just checked real quick on my local school districts website for job opening and there were a few (garlandisd.net). Being that you are looking for a high school position that will not be a problem. The only hard part will be finding the exact opening you are wanting government/girls volleyball. I saw a middle school opening for a girls coach and health teacher?

Check the TEA website about getting certified in Texas (Texas Education Agency). Should be able to link to it from the site I listed above.

Each school district will probably have a website with job openings listed and any local requirements. As for state wide, these might help or have useful links:
  • www.tsta.org - Texas State Teachers Assoc. (teachers union)
  • www.sbec.state.tx.us (broken link) - State Board for Educator Certification
  • www.tea.state.tx.us - Texas Education Agency
Btw, finding that 'perfect' job may take some time. Most high school coaching jobs are fairly sought after positions, so many coaches start in middle school/jr high positions and move up, or start out as assitants. For lots of information on Texas athletics, check out the Univeristy Interscholastic League website:This body governs all public school competition, basically.
