    The market for teachers as I see it is flooded here. The budget
    cuts are not supporting much hiring. I know of many who have
    moved here and have trouble meeting the certification
    requirements when they come from another state. I know of many
    teachers who have been laid off. With the economy as it is, it
    would be best to hang on to any job you have right now.
