Hello! I'm going to be graduating in December, and my fiance and I will be looking for a place to settle down. He is a theatre teacher with a masters in teaching, and I will be a video editor. I've scouted out what looks like a promising job, and we're now looking into moving to Emmaus. We're curious as to the general atmosphere in relation to new families moving in. We'll be having children in the next couple years, and getting a dog/some cats. Probably renting for a little while, then buying a house if the area works out.

Would moving there (or around the area) be a bad move on his part, career-wise? It's not easy to get certified for PA, but he will do it if this job works out for me. I've heard the schools are excellent, but would they be hiring at all?

Emmaus is a great town. The borough itself has a mixture of families that have lived there for generations (the majority) and some rental properties where people move in and out every year. However, there are lots and lots of new developments surrounding Emmaus, in the East Penn school district, where you would find people new to the area. I would suggest that you come visit for a weekend and see what you think.

The schools are excellent in the area and that's why it's hard to get a job. My daughter is teaching at a local middle school and I believe was the only new college graduate to be hired in our district. It takes a good three months, if not longer, to transfer certification and that's after taking the Praxis tests needed for PA. In our school district the person that does the Spring Musical is the Music (voice) teacher and he only gets about a $5,000 a year stipend for the musical. It is not a full time position. Your husband might look at the local Lehigh Valley Charter school for the performing arts: LVPA and check out other acting venues such as Touchstone Theatre Touchstone Theatre or some of the other local acting groups.

Annet - Emmaus is a great town. If you click on the search feature at the top of this page and enter Emmaus or East Penn (school district name) you should see quite a few posts. I would write more but I have to go off to work now.

The largest employer in the Lehigh Valley is the Lehigh Valley Hospital, I think. I have no idea if they or any of the other hospitals are hiring. I certainly would not move without a job unless you have a lot of money in savings. The cost of living up here is fairly high compared to Florida. I'm assuming CNA stands for Certified Nursing Assistant.

Some questions. I will be retiring in about three years from a NY city job. My kids are already in college. So jobs and schools are not to important on my list. Me and my wife are looking to leave NYC when I retire. A small house or even an apartment would be fine for us. I have lived in NYC my whole life and am sick of the crime, the crowds, the filth, the liberal politics. I am looking for a nice quiet small town.
I am American born white and my wife is asian, we both have many family members serving and who have served in the military and the FDNY. My wife has been a citizen since 1990.
Any advice or recommendations about this town?
