Hi Everyone,

I have been living in Tallahassee for almost a year now attending graduate school at FSU. However, my fiancee is still living in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas. She is a teacher in Texas and would like to find a teaching position in Tallahassee. Does anyone have any tips in acquiring a teaching position? I know Leon County is relatively small, thus increasing the difficulty of find a position.

Thanks!

Apply on the leon county schools website. It also helps if you intern at a school. Maybe she can move here and intern for a while part time.

Thanks TD! I think her interning is going to be our best bet, but hopefully she can land a position right away.

True. Good luck. Knowing people is always half the battle. As they always say... Network network network.

JR35,
TD* is right networking is the key and one way of networking is by volunteering. I know, it doesn't bring home a paycheck, but it could get your wife's foot in the door fairly quickly. She could volunteer for the Literacy Volunteers of Leon County by calling Alden Field at (850) 606-2960. He will tell her exactly what to do to get started. She'll meet parents, students, and other teachers on the first day! No telling where that can lead...
Hope this helps,
Cynthia

My g/f just finished graduate school and through her graduate program she worked in the Leon County school system. They were just informed that several aides/para-professionals would not be retained. I'm not sure if the teachers have been affected, however.

My daughter has been looking for a teaching job here for a year, and she has two degrees, in elem. ed and ESE. I had a friend talk to the superintendent this past year and he said in Leon County practically impossible as the paraprofessionals were filling the positions, to go outside the county, to Wakulla, Jefferson, Madison, Gadsden, it's the only way because unless you are first in line with someone who can hire you, there are too many teachers in this community.

There are never enough ESE teachers and I know that 1 position opened up at Desoto Trail Elementary due to a teacher leaving.
