Hello everyone! My husband and I will be moving to Davis or Weber County in June. I am a math teacher. I was wondering what districts would be best to work for. So far I have narrowed it down to Weber County SD, Ogden SD, and Davis County SD.

Does anyone know how a county district compares to a city district? Does any district have better benefits or pay?

Are there any districts that teachers seem to enjoy working for?

Any information anyone could provide would be excellent! I don't mind working with tough kids, as I have been teaching (both as a permanent teacher and as a substitute) in Las Vegas. Thank you again!

The pay in both districts is terrible for anyone who has worked somewhere else as a teacher, and then moved there to teach. I'm not sure what range you are at, but coming in as an experienced teacher - expect to take a huge pay cut.
I am just being honest. When my wife started several years back, she was making 37,000 as a 3-4 year teacher, and when she started working for Davis, whe was at 27,000. It may have all changed... I hope so - but I am guessing not. Its something to consider.

Davis and Weber are a toss up. They are both great and I dont really think one is better than the other. Perhaps Davis is a little more upper middle class than Weber district. The benefits are great in both. You should go ahead and apply for reciprocity and see if you can get your certificate transferred over in Utah and see what you will have to do. It does take time!

Good luck!

Thank you very much for your input. Las Vegas doesn't pay much more. I'm only a 2nd year teacher and I make about 30,000. And, well when you consider the cost of living in Las Vegas compared to living in Northern Utah, I should be alright. I am glad to hear the the benefits are good for both Davis and Weber. Thanks again.
