Hi all,
My boyfriend and I are relocating to SLC so that I can attend graduate school. Does anyone one have any insight into the job market for teachers in the Salt Lake City area? The boyfriend is certified as a high school history/social studies teacher and is going to be looking for a teaching position. Thanks for your input!

It's tough right now. One of the largest districts (Jordan) is facing massive cutbacks, including laying off up to 250 teachers (although some of the bills recently passed by the Legislature will lower this number). I know all of the other districts are having the same issues. Public education funding only had a small cut this year, but the growth is not funded this year.

There are private schools in SLC but I would suspect they don't pay anything near the public school salary - and that's not so good to start with! But some money is better than no money.

My wife (the lisa part of lisamikefoster) is a special ed teacher and didn't have a hard time getting a job when we moved here 2 years ago, but special ed is always in demand. History may be a different story....coupled with the district cutbacks and lay offs and he may be in a bit of a bind.

Once we get through the current budget mess I would think teaching is a good profession in Utah. There are more kids than adults in some areas. The state has a lot of kids. http://www.census.gov/population/projections/45PyrmdUT1.pdf (broken link)

Here is CA for comparison. Smaller percentage of kids. http://www.census.gov/population/projections/05PyrmdCA1.pdf (broken link)

what is the average teaching salary for initial licensure special ed teachers in salt lake city? I am doing my graduate courses in northern virginia and looking to relocate once I'm done with my degree. I don't know how much teachers are getting paid here in northern virginia an DC but the cost of living here is so expensive compared to utah so I don't know if it is wise to move back to utah
