Special-educators in demand despite recession

Yesterday, I received this email from one of the teachers across the country who reads my blog:

Dear Ms. Angala,

I am currently a Special Education teacher in Birmingham, AL. I am relocating to the Washington DC area for the 2009-2010 school year and I am looking for a job. I know there are many schools where I could work but I would like to narrow my search. If you have any suggestions of a good school district or particular school or organization, I would be really appreciative. As a fellow stressed overworked teacher, I know you are busy so I understand if you cannot get back to me. Thanks again.

There are many job openings for special education teachers around the Metr0-DC area. It's in the news last weekend that special educators are in demand despite recession. Even as some Southern California districts lay off hundreds of teachers, they are hiring special-education, math, science and foreign-language teachers. At a job fair, one district was offering a $9,000 bonus for special-educators. San Jose Mercury News (Calif.)
