That would be an unbelievably long commute.

Agreed- it's going to be a long commute regardless. I'd say ~ 40 min to an hr or so driving time to katy and cypress.

You can find great neighborhoods in each of those communities, why not just live in whatever one you work in?

As you may know, my husband is looking for a math teaching job around the area. In fact, we are putting our house on the market before he even finds a job. He has talked to Clear Creek and is still hoping to get in the district. That is our first choice. He has been given the impression that he might get on, when the next grade level comes in at the new high school, in Clear Creek, he teaches something they will need next year.
He is going to Katy and Pasadena when he finishes with the track meet this weekend for job fairs. He is supposed to go back and look at the Cypress Fairbanks school sometime, the one that will have about 4200 this coming year. He would rather be closer to the water than Cypress.
He has driven an hour to work before, then he was coaching, so it was really late. If he only did it for a year he would probably rather live in the area south of houston and commute if he has to. He was just afraid the traffic might make it a longer commute.
We're kinda in a unusual situation. Trying to find a place we might want to retire(we're crowding 50) but we're also parents to a 6 and 10 year. Thus changing schools and communities is not something we want to do.
Thanks for the info.

Difficult, not impossible. If you live in Katy you could take Westpark Tollway to the Beltway 8 Tollway and then take that all the way to the Gulf Freeway. It connects to the Gulf Freeway near Clear Lake. If you had an EZ tag, you wouldn't have to worry about paying the tollman over and over. It would be a long distance, but the traffic is not bad on the tollways.
