I am a NYS certified history teacher (my husband is a NYS English teacher) and we are seriously thinking about moving our family to Colorado. What I want to know is something that only a teacher living and working in Colorado can tell me...what is it like teaching in Colorado? What's the salary like? What are the job opportunities like?
