    Re: Should I teach in colorado??? Advice please

    If you want to work in the mountains --note: very very expensive --
    - but are looking for an elementary art position, there might be
    an opening for the 09-10 school year in Gypsum, CO.
    And I'd like to just add that it took me 7 months to get my CO.
    teaching license.
