    Teaching in Portland, OR

    I teach in Lake Oswego (a suburb of Portland, about 10 minutes south) and I would recommend looking in the suburban districts around the Portland area including Vancouver, Washington (our neighbor to the North). Portland is the biggest school district in the state and has had a lot of budget problems (they almost cut 24 days off the end of their school year). If you weren't aware of it, Oregon itself has been in a major financial crisis, and many school districts, including mine, had to cut days off their school calendars this past year. However, I have heard that there are districts hiring for this coming school year (although I am not sure which ones). I would check with the following districts:

    Lake Oswego
    West Linn-Wilsonville
    Tigard-Tualatin
    Oregon City
    Beaverton
    Estacada
    Clackamas (may also be known as Oregon Trail)
    Parkrose
    Reynolds
    Gresham-Barlow

    There are many more, but these are all I can think of off the top of my head right now. Most (if not all) of these districts have web sites you can check out, just do a search for the city and add school district to the end of it (i.e. "Lake Oswego School District"). I hope this will help you. Feel free to email me directly if I can help you any further. Good Luck!
