I am looking to relocate and am interested in Virginia. I have lived in a few different states, which are trying to eliminate more teachers than they are hiring, and I haven't heard much about teaching jobs in Virginia.

Does anyone have any input on this? What areas, if any, are there available teaching jobs? I am an elementary school teacher which seems to be the hardest area to find a job.

I am not sure the exact area, possibly somewhere close to Smith Mountain Lake area... but I am interested to hear about all areas! Thank you!

Fairfax County is expecting an increase of 2,120 students next year. Not near SML, but they'll have to be hiring.

I'm not familiar with Smith Mountain Lake, so can't address that area. From what I've read here and on other forums, northern Virginia likely has the best employment opportunities for teachers, but its cost of living is (significantly?) higher than the rest of the state.

If you haven't yet signed up at Teachers-Teachers.com, please do -- that's where you'll find postings of current/projected jobs throughout the state.

Smith Mountain Lake is a pretty rural area not too far from Roanoke and Lynchburg. You may want to look up Bedford, Campbell, Franklin Counties as well as Roanoke City and Lynchburg City for public school systems.

It's a beautiful, mountainous area but pretty isolated with small towns.

Good luck.
