CA Teacher w/ Masters relocating

    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

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

    Thanks in advance! Chris Hess
