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!
Congrats!!! What grade(s) will you be teaching?
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!
I also got my first full time position after accepting a maternity leave. Best to you!
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
I hope this leads to something full-time for you!
Congratulations Tim, that is great news and a great step towards a permanent position!

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.
