Been following this since about summer time and love all the great info I get to read.
I see so many posters from all over and figure I take a shot at this one. My fiance and I live in eastern shore VA. Originally from western pa.
I went to Mount Union and got my teaching license in OHIO. Ton of people I know live in the Cbus area and since we can't find a job in PA, we are looking to move to that area. Promise I won't become a buckeye fan.
If anyone has a helpful tip or any good places they might recommend that be great
@meyer 4 prez I'm glad Bill K and Alex G keeps it real with us, instead of getting our hopes up.
most of the kids i went to school with ended with jobs in the vriginia area around DC and baltimore area, i thankfully got one in my home town in NEPA, but when looking I didnt find anything in the columbus area

I had friend do something similar, they moved from DC. From what they said it is tough market. He said the schools in rural Ohio are looking, but its together to get a job closer to the city. He was a school counselor so it made it a bit tougher on him.
IIRC, he worked for a year in a rural school about an hour outside of Columbus and kept applying for jobs and got one much closer to the city. I also should say !

Yes, get special education certified. It is really the only job in demand. With recent laws that allow current special education teachers to take the PRAXIS and add content certifications those jobs are becoming more and more scarce.
Honestly, teaching in Ohio is not a great idea if you're looking to stay here for a long time. The state has been pushing in Michigan's direction (right to work), and the union's days could be numbered.
As far as Columbus goes, you can probably get a job in the Columbus Metro Schools relatively easily, but they aren't exactly pleasant.
In terms of suburbs, if you can find a job anywhere in Hilliard, Dublin or Worthington, you're fortunate. The area to the north of Columbus is growing, so jobs might be growing there, too. Look at Marysville.

Good luck. My niece just had an interview at Garnet Valley for a one year position. There were 400 applicants. A noble profession but not a very good one to get into at this point.
We have applied at Worthington, Olentangy, Dublin, Hilliard, Ghanna, Big Walnut, and Westerville. I think that is a total of like 65 total elementary schools. We both have 2 years of experience, not a ton but it is something now a days.
Can't say this is going to be helpful but my one roommate from college, well his dad works for the OASSA. It is a tough spot right now. I work in the elementary school's right now. Really just looking to get out from where we are. Low pay and with student loans it doesn't really help. We really just want to get out of the area. We are hoping to hear from someone, if not we are looking to sub in one of the areas and then work part time jobs on the side till maybe something comes up. Ya not the best situation but Delaware County is the biggest in Ohio.
Thanks for all responses
Not to start a debate, but what is wrong with going to a right to work state?
Not good for teachers. See: South Carolina.
Honestly, if you can get a sub position, that is not a bad way to go for a year. In fact, that is how I landed my current gig. You can prove yourself to the admin and get a head's up about potential openings before they're made known to the public.
