It is my first year teaching and I was happy to find any kind of job. Currently, I am working 50% in a high school about an hour from my house. I enjoy the work, but the commute is difficult and I am barely making enough to get by, even with my other part-time retail job. Now, a job right in the town where I live opened (just today!). It's 100% so I would even get benefits, which I don't get now. Is it silly to apply? I can't find anything in my current district's contract about resignations. Would they allow me to leave if I was offered the position? Thank you for any advice.
