I've lived in Phoenix ever since I graduated from ASU (class of '05). The job market is great, you will get one for sure. If you PM me I'll let you know the districts you want to work in, where I work, etc. Enjoy the move!
I've lived in Arizona alomst all my life. Surprise is not that far from Phoenix. (It's just north of Sun City)It's so big you don't even know when you leave one city and go into another. There are always jobs, we are building schools all the time. Come to my district. We always need teachers, have a FOUR day week and are located between Phoenix and Tucson where houses are cheap!!! We are Toltec Elementary but there is also Casa Grande Elementary (they go five day!!!) and they are building a new school every year. Join us... the weather is great.
