I was looking at Denver and it seems like a cool artsy place. I'm an art teacher and wondering if it would be worth teaching there? Would I be able to find a job? Does it pay well? What's the economy like there? I notice many homes are very pricey, some aren't. What's the cost of living like? I know bills varie for everyone, but what do you generally pay for food, electricity and gas there? Is Denver a safe community? What other towns are near?

Maria If you want to work in the mountains --note: very very expensive -- - but are looking for an elementary art position, there might be an opening for the 09-10 school year in Gypsum, CO. And I'd like to just add that it took me 7 months to get my CO. teaching license.
