I'm looking to relocate to TN (Sumner County....wife's hometown) and have a few questions about how the system works there. I've been at the same job for 14 years here in CA, and want to know how difficult the switch would be. I teach elementary, but am also curious about Junior Colleges (Sumner or Davidson Counties) Any help on these things would be appreciated:

1. How I would qualify CA credentials in TN 2. How many years to receive tenure 3. Would I be considered a "starting teacher" (if so, what is the average starting salary?)

Obviously, I have more questions, but this is a good start.

Thanks in advance! Chris Hess
