Tips:  Florida is full of sunshine, making it a gorgeous place to live.  The socio-political mindset is fairly conservative.  Florida also boasts a sizeable Cuban immigrant/refugee population, which means that teacher applicants with some knowledge of Spanish will have an advantage over their competitors.

The more "vacation-like" the location, the harder it is to find a teaching or administrative position in Florida.  This is because a lot of retired teachers and administrators from other parts of the country choose to semi-retire in Florida (what teachers call "double dipping").  For example, a teacher from Michigan with 30 years of experience decides to start drawing a Michigan teacher pension, meanwhile relocating to a sunny spot Florida and working as a teacher or administrator.  Many younger teachers find that they cannot compete in the teacher markets of places like Key West.
