Hi...

I am from Ohio and left 5 years ago after I graduated to teach down south. I knew then I would not get a job because of the market, so I decided to go where they were hiring. After this year I would really like to move back to Ohio. What is the job market like? What should I do to get my name out there and get noticed? I am ready to return home to ohio, but cannot do so without a job...any suggestions would be a help :)

Tina/5/OH Kerri,

I'm about an hour and a half southeast of Cleveland. I'm in a rural school district that is in the middle of Cleveland and Pittsburgh. Our district doesn't typically have that many openings at one time, but we have a number of teachers who have retired. Best wishes on your job search!
