Tennessee is the Place for You! (#94)
Tennessee has exciting teaching opportunities for you! In 2010, Tennessee was chosen as one of only two winners in the first round of the Race to the Top competition, which resulted in more than $500 million in federal funding coming to the state for education. If you are ready to be a part of implementing cutting-edge comprehensive education reforms with unmatched educator support and professional development, come teach in Tennessee. Tennessee has immediate needs for teachers in all subjects, at all teaching levels and in all areas of the state. Tennessee offers a legendary music tradition, breathtaking mountain vistas, miles of lakes and rivers and a stirring history. Whether you’re listening to country music at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, bluegrass in the Smoky Mountains or jazz on Beale Street in Memphis, you won’t miss a beat in Tennessee. For a more active lifestyle, put on your running shoes for the Country Music Marathon or visit our state parks for hiking, camping, golfing, biking, fishing, boating and canoeing on our many lakes and rivers.
