Re: sped ed teacher job outlook??

    Due to the influx of new teachers from UNC & CSU, the Loveland
    and Fort Collins district are very competitive - even for
    special ed.- unless you are willing to teach "severe needs"
    students. I know that Greeley has been more desperate for
    special ed. teachers this year. Also, smaller districts in the
    area (Milliken/Johnstown, Ault, Eaton, etc.) usually have at
    least one sp. ed. posting, but the pay is a bit lower than the
    larger districts.You can try applying "up north" first, but the Denver Metro
    area will have more least you will be able to be
    more picky there.

    Also, be sure to apply for your CO teaching license at least 4
    months before you get ready to look for a position. For some
    reason, CDE is VERY slow with processing applications.

    Good luck...Where are you moving from?
