He can basically get a job this afternoon if he wants special ed. Let me know if he is interested. (send me a note) I can give you some contact names for Fulton County. And most of the Fulton schools offer inclusion, so he could do team teaching pretty much all day and be in the reg class. Good way to get into a school!!!

Default teachers in East Cobb

I went to the cobb teacher job fair and had a promising interview with a principal from an East Cobb school. However, looking at housing prices, I know I can't afford to live there. Where do teachers live that teach there that is affordable. approx. 225k

You can afford a house in East Cobb for that price. There are some older well established swim/tennis neighborhoods with homes in that range. Off the top of my head I can think of Chimney Springs, Prince Howard, Post Oak Square(great swim/tennis just awesome) Chadds Ford, and I think some places in Carriage Parks/Lakes. It is worth for the schools. There was an earlier post about a family moving from the Boston area and another poster listed a ton of subdivisions with homes in that range. Do a search under East Cobb and you'll find it. These are older well built homes most likely in need of some updating......but good neighborhoods, great schools.

I heard that West Forsyth HS is UNBELIEVABLE! Have you checked it out? It's brand new and everyone is raving about it. I have quite a few clients who will not leave the school district, they will even pay a little more $$ to stay.

In smaller, outer-suburban districts, such as Forsyth, Bartow, Newton, Henry, Coweta, Paulding, etc., you stand a better chance of landing a job, simply if you mail a resume and a cover letter directly to the school (to the principal). In more populated districts, such as Cobb, Fulton, etc., this isn't as successful, as a lot of people think that these are the more desireable districts. Take it from me: Inner-Suburban districts are littered with ghetto-attitude children, or snobs, who will make your life miserable inside a classroom. The standards for teaching in these districts are set to liberal "progressive" standards that frown on actual teaching. In essence, they basically want you to be a baby sitter.

Of those three districts, I'd definitely go with Forsyth.

Kids are likely to be better-behaved, meaning you'd enjoy your teaching job.

The environment is new suburban, or outer-suburban, so it's not as crowded.

The district likely wouldn't put harden burdens upon you. However, you might want to check into their goals or mission statements on the schools' website to see if they are likely to be anti-true education.
