The Gateway to the west, Missouri is Algonquian Indian for “river of the big canoes”, appropriate considering the vast number of scenic rivers and streams in Missouri, including the Missouri River, the largest river in North America. When you take a position as a special education teacher in the “Show Me” state you will experience the beauty of all four seasons, from moderately cold winters to hot, humid summers. Aesthetically breathtaking, Missouri is home to the Ozark Mountains and over 5,500 recorded caves, earning it the nickname the Hollow State.
As a special education teacher in Missouri, spend a weekend in St. Louis and explore the tallest monument built in the U.S., the Gateway Arch, or just spend a day at the venerated Busch Stadium and take in a Cardinal’s game. Enjoy the “music capital” of the Midwest when visiting Branson, Missouri, showcasing over 50 theaters, three beautiful lakes, several championship golf courses, and the award winning theme park, Silver-Dollar City. Birthplace to President Harry S. Truman, poet T.S. Eliot, and the Outlaw Jesse James, Missouri has a history as diverse as the people who call it home.
