Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum but have found a lot of helpful information here. I was hoping I can get some more help, though. I'm 22 years old and am a 2nd grade teacher currently living in North Jersey. I still live with my family but am ready to move out. I'm really considering south jersey & have been on rent.com looking at places in cherry hills, marlton, etc. my question is what do you recommend or any info I can have on these areas. I'm hoping rent won't exceed $1000. I'm single and looking for a 1 bedroom.
My next thing would be working in the school system. I of course want to find work before making a far move. I couldn't commute over an hour to stay at my job in north jersey. My degree is in K-5 and Spanish. Any info on the school systems or the possibility of hiring for the 2014-2015 school year?
I plan on saving this current school year and hope to be out of my house by May/June.
Thanks

I know the Camden schools are always looking. They are an inner city school district in a not so safe city (to put it mildly). It can be intimidating and not for everyone. But the K-5 rarely see too many problems. With your bilingual abilities you will have a leg up.

Cherry Hill is a HUGE district. But positions usually open up when people retire. Just keep watching the job boards and apply as you see them. Good luck and thank you for becoming a teacher. You guys rock!

Thanks so much for the response. I know Camden is not the best city so I don't know if I would want to work there. But I will keep checking the job boards.
