    Had the interview today & got it on the spot (unlike my other full-time teacher interviews I've had). :2up: I'm excited because I always subbed for 5th grade last year(at that school) and I know pretty much all the kids that I may be getting! 3 period block of GATE kids & 3 period block of lower but NOT RSP... love the school & hope to teach there one day. It's also a bonus that I get to start off the class from the first day of school!

    The teacher left on medical leave until (at least) Jan...though they have a feeling it may turn into the full year. I really wish it will turn into a full-time position eventually. :blush:

    Hopefully...all goes well!

    Just a quick question - how long is the LTS job? In my district, there is a maximum time the district can have a LTS for one position. Our contract reads this way to prevent our district from LTS's positions instead of hiring full time teacher. You might want to check this out

    I was there from the very first day of school..until the last day of school. Basically...I was hired as a FULL time teacher...for super cheap & no benefits. My district doesn't have any rules on how long a LTS can stay for a particular position. It's so wrong....

    You were the whole year and you didn't receive any benefits? That is so wrong!! I assume that you are a certified teacher. The teacher's union where you are needs to get the contract changed! There is not way they should be able to hire a certified teacher as a sub for a year! And now it looks like they just want to keep you as their fill in sub!

    You are right - it is so wrong. You need to check with your local union, even if you aren't a member, to make sure the school didn't violate the teachers' contract. Most contracts have some time of time limit on LTS; so check with the union not the central office or principal
