Thinking of relocating to the Loveland/Fort Collins area. I hear their school systems are pretty good. Wondering if there are any HS chem jobs. Also in general, how is the teaching climate in this area. I'm from NJ and things are ok here, we have a very strong union and our pay is among the highest in the country (but so is our cost of living). Although pay is not that important to me at this point in my career, really just wondering if I'd be able to get a job out there. Thanks.

Finding a job in a good district with a good contract takes time, but it's worth it. I started applying with DPS in January through their online application system. Jo...See More

Mrs. teacher The job market for teachers in northern Colorado is almost zero existance. CO Teach was right about the Thompson School district and there is a ton of corruption there right now so I would avoid that district if possible. I know there is a charter school opening that would love to have a chem teacher. Good Luck. Thompson school district decided it ...See More
