Re: Colorado Licensure

    I wouldn't be moving until next summer so I have some time to
    get my ducks in a row.

    But, what is the job situation like? I have NY and PA
    certifications in elementary ed and special ed (in PA I also
    have middle school certs but I'm not sure they'd transfer
    easily). I have experience as well. I have browsed the net
    and it seems like there are jobs available. I'm just trying to
    get a feel for what is really going on out there since trying
    to find a job from 2000 miles away might be tricky :P
