DH is applying for teaching jobs in NC (we live in east TN). Wake County and Durham City schools are looking good to us!
We're in our mid-thirties with a 3 yo dd and 15 mo ds. I'm a SAHM...former biologist with wistful imaginings of obtaining a PhD once the kids are more independent.
So my question is - in that huge area, where would you recommend living? We will be renting for at least 1 year. We hope to homeschool, but would like to consider good school districts just in case we stay at the rental home for a while and don't homeschool.
(If you know the zip code that would help with my research!)
Since we aren't sure where DH would be teaching (assuming he gets a job there!) we aren't limited by job location.
We're very open to both older well-maintained or updated homes as well as newer homes and would be looking in the $700-1000/month range. We like eclectic areas but we've been living in an unsafe area for a while now and are really wanting to find a very safe, unquestionably family-friendly location where we can walk around and feel relatively comfortable!
Thanks in advance!
