Looking for warmer weather. We currently are from a very large school district with lots of room to grow. Seeking the same but with the promise of more sunny days than cold. Which areas are the best to relocate and we also need good schools for our children. One in high school and one in elementary. All information is welcome

Default Budget

Not sure what the currect salaries are. i know they are less than what I am making now but the cost of living is less as well. So i guess the answer to budget would be whatever is comparable. We are a pretty simple family that likes the outdoors.

Are you looking for a place to live, work, or both?

Because frankly the top rated school districts will all be in wealthy suburbs and will be among the most difficult places to find work as an out-of-state applicant. The districts most looking for teachers will be the worst ones to live and work in. That said, it is relatively easy to put together a list.

In the DFW area the wealthiest and highest performing districts will be Highland Park, Southlake, Plano, Coppell, et. Basically the wealthy suburbs north of Dallas and Fort Worth.

In Austin you would be looking at the Eanes and Lake Travis districts west of the city.

In San Antonio you'd be looking at the districts to the northwest of the city.

In Houston you'd be looking at places like Katy to the west of the city and the Woodlands to the north.

And then in every city there are dozens more as you work your way down the socioeconomic scale.

In Lubbock, the wealthier schools are in general in the southwest and west of the city.

I'd look in the northern suburbs of DFW as that is the area that is growing the fastest. Plano, Allen, McKinney, Frisco, Lewsiville, Prosper, Rockwall, etc.

If you have experience you should have little problem getting hired. I've reloe'd a number of people out of state for IT jobs. Three had spouses who were teachers - two got hired into Plano other hired into Allen.
