Hello,
I'm a bilingual(Korean+English) asian female. I'm graduating soon with florida music teacher certification. Now I'm thinking about relocating to either CA or WA after graduation and I would like to know what are my chances of landing a public school music teaching job in ones of these states?
When I search the job openings at websites such as schoolspring.com or edjoin.org, I see a lot more postings from California than washington state. Is that means that my chances of getting a job will be better in California?
Since I've read a lot of negative articles and threads on the crisis of California's public education, especial music and arts, I'm confused about what it's really like.
I will appreciate any comments/advice.
Thanks!

Band, choir, orchestra, or general music? K-6, 7-12, or K-12?

Oh, and make sure your certificate transfers. California is very picky about this, and odds are your Florida certification does not transfer to there. No idea about Washington.

California has laid off thousands of teachers due to state budget cuts. This is the fourth forum in which the OP has posted this thread.

Thank you so much for all your replies.
I would like to teach either K-12 general music or choral music.
I thought California grants reciprocity for Florida teachers. If my florida certification dose not transfer, should I take some classes in order to get qualified in California?
I know that some other states grant a temporary certificate first, and then give the permanent one if you pass the required exams within a year or so.
Can anyone clarify this??
Appreciate your time in advance!
