I currently live in Arizona and I am considering moving to Kentucky to be closer to my family. I currently have 4 years teaching experience in AZ. I was trying to find a job in Indiana but I have learned that the job market for elementary teachers there is HORRIBLE. My family is actually in Indiana. A lot of the schools in Indiana have like 500 applications per position. Should I expect the same sort of job market in Kentucky? I really don't want to sub in order to find a job. I would really like to find a job before I decide to move.

I guess it depends on what area in Kentucky you are applying and for which grade or subject. It seems we always have openings in our area in southern Kentucky.

Northern Kentucky has a high demand for any type of educator right now especially Boone County and the districts located within Boone County.

BlueBelt, ye sound homesick but thats okay. At large degree ye caint believe anything discouraging yer family tells ye - but reconnoitre networking through acquaintances/friends instaed.

Otherise yeah, probly waste of time navigating job search 8 states away. Girlfriend of mine got hired on the spot over conversation she had at drugstore in Eastern Kentucky. She ended up teaching English at local high school and never looked back.

Thats pretty much how its done here across the board in all occupations. Nobody hires from millions of miles away.

Go to the Kentucky Dept of Education. They maintain a database of openings statewide. http://apps.kde.state.ky.us/keps/index.cfm There are many positions open in Oldham County. The county has the highest number of board certified teachers in the state and is a perennial contender for national awards at every level.
