Where to Search & Look for Teaching Jobs

Are you a recent college grad and/or are looking for teaching jobs? While some areas are laying off teachers by the thousands others are hiring them by the thousands. I absolutely understand the struggle of trying to stay located in a specific area and find a teaching job that seems impossible to attain other than sheer luck or who you know. Several times my husband (the teacher in our family!) has opened up his job search internationally (although leaning USA based) so we have come across a lot of resources in the past decade. Below are some ideas as well as current trends I’ve seen on social media of areas looking for schools – whether public, private, or international! If you’re looking for a teaching job you’ve got nothing to lose by checking out some of the sites below!

Remember, always keep in mind the cost of living in the location of the job you are considering too! Some locations have sign on/moving bonuses as well. I also recommend trying to research the school/district you are interested in for any positive/negative reviews.
