    while ive never taught in NYC, i had looked to teach there for a while.
    youre on the right track with getting you fingerprints and NYC
    certification down. i would suggest a start at the NY Times. they often
    advertise positions in the harder to fill areas there, as well as private
    school openings.

    i think that the place you applied for your NYC license (in the bronx) has
    listings of schools, and which might have openings. thats where i got mine
    from.

    if those don't turn anything up for you, try going to a career resource
    center of a NY college. they might have lists of openings that have been
    forwarded on by schools.

    i know a couple years ago they had been talking about a big boom in the (i
    think) middle schools. though, i remember reading they laid off some
    ridiculous amount of new (those with less than 2 years in NYC public
    schools) teachers in the arts.

    with your teaching experience and just plain willingness to teach in NYC
    schools, im SURE you will get a job in no time!

    also, if you're thinking it might be too much (...im originally from
    pittsburgh.. like being from ohio, i suspect your culture shock to living
    in NYC will be as bad if not worse as mine was) you can always apply for
    the slew of schools out on long island that advertise in the NY Times. and
    if you want to get more wealthy than that, target westchester and
    surrounding counties just over the border to mainland NY. yonkers is a
    good place as well, and i saw them advertising.

    hope this helps. if you have any more questions, i'll be glad to help with
    what i know from here.
