Re: Teaching near Nashville
Posted by Jennifer on 6/05/08
Personally, the best schools are in northern, TN. This would
be Sumner and Robertson Counties or even Macon and Trousdale
Counties. This counties are mainly small schools with small
class sizes. For Sumner County, the starting salary is
$32,000. The further you go out such as Macon and Trousdale
counties these will have very small class sizes since these
are mainly farm kids. Sumner County is only about 20 minutes
to downtown Nashville, but still is very rural also. Good Luck
to you guys!!!
