I'm a college senior currently living in Tampa now and I want to take the necessary steps to be a teacher by taking the certification exams for elementary education. I'm torn between Orlando and Atlanta and with both exams being very pricey I can only take one. My question is, what is the job outlook for hiring teachers with non-education degrees? What is the process for either city (whichever you have knowledge of) for getting a job? When does the hiring usually take place (throughout the year, summer, etc.)? As well as any other valuable information, thanks so much!

The chances of getting a teaching job with a non-teaching degree are slim-to-none right now. The school systems here are making huge cuts, have limited hiring this year, and have their pick of the litter of folks who already have their teaching credentials.

Thanks so much for the response, very informative, something huge to consider and you're referring to Atlanta not Orlando correct?

Atlanta definitely, and probably Orlando as well. Both areas have seen huge decreases in the influx of new residents, so they aren't growing as fast and hiring teachers at the same high rate.
