I am very familiar with the Shawnee Mission Schools. I
have taught for a few years and grew up in the district. It
is a solid district, but is down sizing some and there will
be a ton of people retiring in the next few years. It is
the 2nd highest paying district in Kansas just behind
Wichita, but they reward you greatly once you have your
Master's Degree. So if you don't have it you need to get
it. The top district in Kansas right now is Olathe. You
might check it out too along with Blue Valley and Desoto.
