^I hate to sound offensive, but perhaps DeKalb County couldn't find teachers here as adept in math in science as they found overseas. Also, as the article mentioned, a substantial majority of refugee children in Georgia are educated in the county--it's not all natives like half a century ago.

Are there any job fairs for teachers opening up in 2011? I have been looking on-line and have not come across any.

Are there any Spanish/Foreign Language teaching positions available? Is that even a high demand specialty in Metro Atlanta?

Wow no persecution here. I mean, everybody was pretty much on the money, relating their REALITIES. So this is life without bullying?

I currently teach in Fl and my husband and I were looking to relocate to GA in the summer. Has the job situation gotten any better or is it completely impossible to find an elementary position?

I would say beyond difficult if not impossible. Everyone is bracing for more cuts, increased class sizes, etc. Many systems are talking more furloughs for teachers etc.

In addition, while no one will say this to you, if you have years of experience, I think you won't get hired over someone who is brand new because of $$$. I had a friend last year with 10 years experience where a principal actually told her she could hire two teachers for what she would cost her.

Finally, lots of certified teachers who have been working as subs this year trying to make connections etc. who will have an edge should any positions open.

Can you live on his income alone? Even if you can't imagine doing so, can you structure your move in such a way that you can. Then you might be able to sub, make contacts etc as you look for a job.
