Moving to DE and Would Like to Teach There
Gwen in Philly, PA

    I'm moving to Delaware from Philadelphia next year and
    would like to teach there instead of having to commute back
    to Philly to my current job. I've taught for 14 years in
    the Ardiocese of Phila. and am in my 4th year as a public
    school teacher. Is there anyone on this board who can give
    me some sort of guidance as to exactly how to get my name
    out in Delaware? I've gone to the big teacher's job fair at
    the university there, and also to a smaller one. It seemed
    like DE preferred to hire their own first, but I know there
    has to be some sort of concession some where, I just don't
    know where. I'm certified in Elementary Ed. as well as
    Middle Schools Language Arts. I'm planning to go for
    certification in Middle Schools Social Studies this year
    too.I'd hate to have to commute back and forth to Philly to
    work, but plan to do so only if I have no other choices.
    Does anyone have any suggestions that I can try? Thanks to
    anyone who can help me, and if not, I guess I'll just keep
    on trying until I'm successful.
