Hello Teachers. I am a relatively new teacher in Missouri. I’ve been an mathematics educator for 3 years now and I am looking at relocating to another district within the same state and for the same position. What are some great tips for someone making their first career relocation. What questions should I be on the look out for in interviews, and how do I make sure my current district knows I am still dedicated to our mission? Any advice would help. Thank you in advance.

I’ve made the same type of change a few years ago.

Depending on your relationship with your Dept. Head start there. Talk about your reason for looking (pay, quality of life, whatever it is). Be upfront and don’t try to hide your job search. You will need references anyway, so might as well be open.

One caveat. I don’t know how Missouri works, but in New England leaving after three years can be a red flag on a resume since it looks like you left just shy of professional status.


Be prepared to explain the gap between certification and your current job. For some administrators, it’s a 🚩 that teaching was your backup plan. (I apologize that this sounds harsh!) Some more “accepted” answers to gaps are staying home with young kids, relocating to another city/state, illness in family, etc.
Also, be sure to know your “why”: what led you to a career in education, and why are you interested in the position and the school/district? You’d be surprised how many people stumble on this one!


Try to move to a high school if you have the right credential. Don't chase money, but try for school districts with good scores and good students to survive in this era of teaching. I would imagine that each district has different things they are looking for, so prepare yourself for all manner of questions. Perhaps ask your current admin for questions they would ask of potential new hires. Ask brand new teachers what they recall from their interview process. I just moved schools, and I had a lot of experience with interviews!

Hi guys, After CAF completion by last week, yesterday I received a call from the HR for the second round of evaluation. So, I attended it yesterday and performed well by answering 90-95% of the questions. Even the interviewer gave good comments on my performance. But suddenly today I received an email that my candidature isn't suitable for the role and they're keeping my profile in the database. Does this mean they'll call me if there are openings with some other project?
