It is possilbe to find a "small town" school outside of the
Metro Nashville area, but it won't be easy. Try some of the
surrounding areas: Williamson County, Franklin City School
District (highest paying area), Rutherford County,
Murfreesboro City School District, and Wilson County. These
areas are south, east and west of Nashville. I'm not
familiar with the northern areas. There are several private
schools in the Metro Nashville area.
My daughter teaches in the Metro Nashville area. She loves
it, but you must have a heart for the inner city child.
I wish you luck.
