I don't really expect to get alot of replies to this thread given what's going on down there with Gustav right now. However...

I was wondering what Elementary School teaching jobs look like in the greater New Orleans area these days. Are there alot of teaching jobs availible ? What is the average salary ? Starting salary ?

My wife lived in Harvey during Katrina and was working/abandoned downtown during/after the storm. That combined with the way things were she says that she'd never want to live there again. However, She's been away for over three years and I think she misses home and her family alot. We're both going back to school. I was just curious if it would be worth my time/effort to possibly look into New Orleans as a possible future home.

Thanks for your time and hope everyone is okay through the Hurricane !

There are some great charter schools that have come a LONG way since pre-Katrina schools. Green Charter, uptown is one. The director of the school has high standards for his team of teachers. I've got friends who have been teaching there for many years.
I hear the Kipp schools are pretty cool as well, though I have not yet experienced them first-hand. I've been involved with after school programming at 4 N.O. charter schools in the past 3 years and have had the privilege to examine behind the scenes what the teachers are like, environment, etc.
I am not certain what the starting salary is, but if your wife misses the city, she should at least explore her options as there are many in post-K NOLA for teachers. I've met teachers who have moved here from Colorado, New York and Washington - all excited to be a part of our new schools.

Here's another school that popped up after Katrina that looks interesting - About Us
