    Research! I am a CO teacher and there have been huge budget
    cuts, teacher lay offs all across the state. It is super
    competitive. I don't know your answer regarding your
    retirement but as for our district you would start as a 1st
    year teacher with 0 yrs experience! (they only give credit
    for CO teaching) Definitely contact the specific districts
    for more info. I am not trying to steer you away, just
    research and realize things are tight for right now. In a
    couple of years maybe it will be different. I speak for
    northern Co.
