Re: sped ed teacher job outlook??
Due to the influx of new teachers from UNC & CSU, the Loveland
and Fort Collins district are very competitive - even for
special ed.- unless you are willing to teach "severe needs"
students. I know that Greeley has been more desperate for
special ed. teachers this year. Also, smaller districts in the
area (Milliken/Johnstown, Ault, Eaton, etc.) usually have at
least one sp. ed. posting, but the pay is a bit lower than the
larger districts.You can try applying "up north" first, but the Denver Metro
area will have more jobs...at least you will be able to be
more picky there.
Also, be sure to apply for your CO teaching license at least 4
months before you get ready to look for a position. For some
reason, CDE is VERY slow with processing applications.
Good luck...Where are you moving from?
