Here is where you can find reciprocity info (I also attached the Jersey info)
I have transferred my teaching license to VA from NV and it was pretty easy.
As for your DH I think his line of work can be anywhere.
Having moved across the country I would say visit any place you are thinking of if possible. We visited here twice before we moved and my DH stayed here with a friend for 3 weeks before we moved to do some job hunting and apartment hunting.
Good luck and let me know if you need more info on moving as a teacher.

Don't get me wrong, his house is cute, but in other states you could have quite a nice house with cheaper taxes (taxes equal about $7000 a year). The cost of living is way too much and it is just overwhelming. Also, if anyone has ever lived here, it is like you are on fast forward-go-mode all of the time. Even if we took a pay cut moving somewhere else, it would probably be well worth it because of a more affordable cost of living, and a better quality of life. I would love to eventually buy a house in the town I grew up in, but considering it costs on average $500,00 for a small 3 BR and taxes are probably about $8000 a year, it seems insane! Not to mention our outrageous car insurance! I really am appreciating all of this feedback!
