Is anyone familiar with the schools in South Jersey? I know that someone posted about looking for a job with an alternate route teaching license, but are there teaching jobs for teachers holding regular licensure?

Do you know of any areas that are growing tremendously that would create the need for new teachers?

I am looking to get out of Middlesex county. I was going to try to find a location to live in South Jersey where I could commute to South Brunswick where I work, but maybe I can begin a search for employment out that way too.

I don't think there's really any areas in South Jersey that are growing so quickly that there's a huge need for new teachers (as in new schools being added that need whole new staffs). There's always the typical attrition through retirements, promotions to adminstration, and teachers quitting, but that's in pretty much any district. You're probably best off just trying to find a few places that you'd like to live and then seeing how many positions those towns have available- I doubt you'll find any places that wil vary much from the others. Of course, there's always a need for teachers in Trenton and Camden- I hear they even give you a bullet-proof vest at orientation.......

Thanks! I will look into these areas. I will leave the bullet proof vest wearing areas for the newbies right out of college. They have more energy than me.

Woolwich Twp is the fastest growing municipality in NJ. Also in Gloucester county, Logan Twp and Mullica Hill (Harrison Twp) are still growing.

And Winslow Twp (Williamstown area) in Camden County.

Hi, I taught in South Jersey for two years. Yes, many towns are growing but that does not mean they are adding as many teachers as we might think.

South Jersey does not have the number of open teaching positions that are found in Central and Northern Jersey.

That being said, it really depends what you teach. Elementary positions receive about 300 applicants where high school special ed and science might get 6-10, if they are lucky.

A number of my friends who were not in demand were able to crack into districts by subbing. Sure, it is annoying getting calls at 5-6am but it is a great way to get known at many districts.
