I’m currently teaching a grade I love in a district I love and tried hard to get into. My fiancé and I moved out of the city and into a town nearby, so of course, I want to be a little bit closer to home as my commute is about 1hr. I put in for a transfer within my district for my dream school which happens to shave about 25 mins off my drive, but also applied for the new district I now live in because it’s super close. The new district also has a great reputation but pays less, and my current one pays above average which is nice. However, I also very much dislike the school I’m at right now and want to leave if I can. I got to meet with admin from my dream school I want to transfer to and there isn’t anything available at the moment but there MAY be an opening in a few weeks. Admin liked me and told me they’d keep in touch. I have an interview on Thursday with the other district for a brand new campus they need to staff. I emailed this principal several weeks back hoping to get an interview and this was before I was able to meet with my dream school. I’m stuck because ideally I want to transfer to my dream school, but that’s a risk since I won’t know if there’s anything for a few weeks, and I have this other interview this week. If they offer me the position and I take it, I could potentially miss out on something from my dream school. If I don’t accept it, I run the risk of staying where I am if something doesn’t happen with my dream school. Any advice? If I get an offer this week would it be ok to ask for a day or two? It’s not nearly long enough considering I’d need a few weeks, but if I accept yet don’t sign for a few weeks, is it ok to go back and decline if something else pops up?
