Hi there,

Currently teaching in Fort Worth, Texas as a reading specialist for k-5th school. Looking to make a move closer to home. My husband and I were looking into the Rochester, MN area or anywhere near the twin cities. I got my initial teaching licence and degree in Wisconsin but am unaware of how the job climate is in Minnesota. Any and all suggestions welcome!

I'm still interviewing for a special ed job with 20 years experience. The area in the immediate cities seems to be saturated with teachers. The Rochester and that area south of the cities like in Owatonna and such seem to have a harder time finding teachers. If you go outside the cities in the north, you could find a job too but you wouldn't be paid very well. In my opinion, searching south of the cities, like Rochester, will turn into a positive result for you. Good luck.
I used to live in Wisconsin, but since the new governor-Scott Walker, I don't think you'd want to teach there. No unions any more and the pay is based on your students' test scores. That's what I heard from teachers over there any way.
