Hi, my husband is most likely going to be transferred to
KA towards the end of this school year. I'm a TX girl and
am interested in hearing what it's like to teach in KS. I
teach 5th grade and here it is test, test, test, test. We
are told what to teach and when, then tested on it. I hope
it's a little less test oriented in Kansas. I have 32
fifth graders in a self-contained class. How are class
sizes there? Also, how difficult is it to get a teaching
job? I've been teaching eight years and am recognized as a
good teacher in my community, but I am over 40 and
sometimes principals like the younger girls. Thanks for
any info you care to share!

Several years ago I taught 8th grade in the Shawnee Mission
District. Currentlly, I'm in a District in Houston. Maybe
it's nestalgia, but my current District compares poorly with
Shawnee Mission. The support was great. The students were
cooperative. The schools were neat and clean including the
restrooms...See More

Thanks for all the info. I truly appreciate it. It's looking
pretty certain that he'll be transferred there in March and
we will join him when school is out and we sell our house.
I've been researching Olathe on the internet and it looks
like a GREAT place to live.
