You can look up the schools in Boston here: http://www.greatschools.org/search/search.page?state=MA&q=boston&type=school
Read the parent reviews, check out the test scores, and then narrow in on school districts that interest you. Most school districts have websites and even special pages or sites for hiring. Pay attention to application deadlines for the best chance of getting hired.
I believe that Canton schools are the best in MA. You can go to the Massachusetts Dept. of Education and also review schools by MCAS achievement scores. Near Canton is Milton, you might check there as well. I have second hand knowledge, I had a friend teach in Brockton which has a lot of needs but the elementary level provides a lot more resources and teacher support.My friend is now the Asst. Principal there. The Hancock Elementary school also partner with Bridgewater State University to provide prepracticum for teachers. I did it there myself before I became I teacher. Brockton is further south of Boston. Closer to Boston would be Canton, Milton and perhaps you could see about Quincy. I would stay away from Roxbury, Dorchester, Roslindale, Jamaica Plain. Good luck.82806
I disagree with @annodteacher 's comment of staying out of " Roxbury, Dorchester, Roslindale, Jamaica Plain" (essentially the inner city). While there are inadequate schools in the inner city (there are schools similar to the inner city's "bad" schools that are outside of Boston), there are schools that are amazing in the inner city, like Edward W. Brooke Charter School (the Roslindale branch is amazing- 2 more are being built in other parts of the city-). Seeing how they are building more, they will need to hire new teachers. While kids from the inner city may come to school with issues (problems at home, living in poverty, etc), there may be more you may need to deal with, but the school has the resources for the kids to receive aid when needed.83172
