I feel teaching elementary is a calling, not simply a job

- Jacob & Brandy BeckettLaramie County School District

Wyoming schools are looking to attract elementary teachers who have a desire to work in the more rural areas of the state.  They are seeking teachers who find intrinsic reward in helping all of their students receive a quality education.  Wyoming wants teachers who see the value in guiding young children into the knowledge that with perseverance, desire and an education they can pursue their dreams.

Wyoming has the honor of having the fewest residents in the U.S. This is good news for elementary teachers who appreciate having a low teacher student ratio.   Salaries and benefits for Wyoming teaching jobs hinge on both experience and on qualifications.  A boon of teaching in Wyoming is the freedom to enjoy the wide open spaces where the Rocky and Big Horn mountains offer everything from skiing and hiking to hunting and bird watching.
