My apologies if this has been addressed recently (please just point me to the thread if this is the case).

I just unexpectedly got off of the waitlist at Vanderbilt Law, though I've already signed a lease in St. Louis and am really having trouble with this decision now...

...My main concern is job opportunities for my fiance, who is certified in PA (a certification which extends to all states in the union) to teach English for kids 7th through 12th grade.

What are the prospects like down there? Is it a growing job market?

Thanks for any information!

I can't speak of teaching opportunities in town, but I do want to remind you or share with you (if you do not know) the Good Neighbor Next Door Program offered by HUD. There is a substantial incentive where they offer homes 50% of list price to teachers through 12th grade, law enforcement officers and emergency medical technicians and firefighters as long as they will occupy it as their sole residence for at least 3 years.

I don't think it is difficult at all to get a job teaching at a Metro high school, but there are many that I wouldn't teach at if I wasn't allowed to carry a firearm. Many of the surrounding counties -- namely Williamson, Sumner, Wilson, and Rutherford -- have very good school systems where it is probably a little more difficult to get a foot in the door, but that is probably where I would start.
