This is my first ever post on this thread but it was recommended to me through a friend. I am a NYS certified teacher with one years experience under my belt. I need advise on how do I go about finding a math teaching job in or near Las Vegas and if I need to do anything before hand to ensure that in certified in the state of Nevada. I'm hoping to solve all of this by the the start of the school year in September. Thanks.

My wife, the English teacher, has discovered there are math teachers at CCSD who don't understand fractions. So, finding one who knows the difference between advice and advise is probably a good thing.

Who needs to learn grammar when spell checking catches 90% of the mistakes?

jeez, at least everdeen helped out. if i had some info on getting a teaching job here i'd pass it on, typo or not. some ppl are so full of themselves. you wouldn't see half of these bs posts if there wasn't reputations to hand out as they clap each other on the back with a rep hit and feel good about it.

anyway, welcome to c-d las vegas tetra686. is that the s&w 686 per chance?

I know decimals, fractions, geometry, all that stuff. I understand it but do I know how to help someone else comprehend it? Nope. I have tried. Even though I know the answer to a math problem, it's difficult to try and teach someone how to find a a solution to a problem without giving them the answer.

This is when good/great teaching skills come into play. My daughter's teacher from this past school year showed my daughter some neat problem solving tricks, easier ways to distinguish synonyms-antonyms, found a way to make history exciting and science more hands-on-engaging. The teacher wasn't the smartest, she wasn't the brightest, wasn't the wittiest, a little too quiet at times but behind closed doors with an overcrowded room full of Las Vegas 9-10 year olds, she was awesome.

I do believe a teacher should more than understand his/her subject of teaching but as long as she can pass on the CORRECT information to the students and keep them interested, then they are doing what they are paid to do.

Just curious why you would pick here? I moved from NY and made more money when I worked there. I was thinking about returning to NY! LOL ( well, if I do not find a better paying job soon that is)
