    I'm not sure how the market generally is in FL. In NY, things are incredibly tight. There aren't lots of jobs open now that school has started.

    In this job market, I would suggest taking the 3 month position when it's offered, and hope that it parlays into something longer term. It's not unheard of for a new mom to choose to stay home. In any event, you would be building your reputation with an administration-- that can't be a bad thing!

    That's fabulous! I'm glad you took it. You'll get some resume building experience and make some good connections. Connections are everything.

    Congrats, tim!! I know its not a full time position, but you never know, the teacher could decide to take the rest of the year off. And like others have mentioned, its a great way to make some great connections.

    Wow, lots of preps! But you CAN do it, and then you will have some great letters of recommendation to show around. I got a full time position after a LTS. Years ago, I was one of those teachers who didn't come back after a maternity leave. Best of luck and congrats!

    Good luck and CONGRATS! My former administrator uncle tells me the best way to get into a district is to do a long term sub job. He says he was ALWAYS filling positions from those he knew could handle a classroom as a LTS

    Congrats! My 3 month LTS maternity leave position turned into 6 months when the teacher decided to stay home through the end of the year. Even if it does end up being just the 3 months it's still excellent experience. I understand FL has a tight market so congrats on getting your foot in the door.
