Before you all yell at me and tell me to stay where I am
because the supply of educators severely outweighs the
demand, please be aware that I have been reading this
board for over 2 years and am aware of current situation
with regards to jobs in the Denver area.
That said, my husband has put his own career on hold for
me as an educator here in Georgia, and he has the
opportunity to finally secure a position in the Denver
area in the next 12-18 months that will make him the
primary money earner in our family (rather than me). He
is from Littleton, grew up in Denver and Castle Rock, and
Denver is home to him. He wants to come home.
All of that said, if we do indeed move, I will be
attempting to find a middle school position somewhere in
the Denver area. I am currently certified in GA in
Language Arts (which is my primary field--I teach 8th
grade), though I am also certified in Math and Social
Studies (and have experience teaching both). I recently
began the progress to obtain a teaching license in
Colorado, even though I am not sure we will, in fact, be
moving for sure.
So, any advice you can offer would be greatly
appreciated. I know you don't want me to move into the
oversaturated market, however, I am simply asking for
advice, district information, etc.
