I am hoping for a full time elementary teaching job for the new school year, but with the economy the way it is I also know it might not be possible. I've applied to public and private schools. I currently work only 3 days a week at a preschool. I need something full time to support myself. I am thinking of applying to another church preschool which is full time (7am-6pm, but you don't have to work all 11 hours) so I would have more of an income than I do now as my current preschool does not offer before or after care whereas many other preschools do. But then what if I accept a preschool job, and then I get offered a full time elementary job. I'd feel awful backing out of a job I already agreed to, but at the same time I need a back up plan for full time work if an elementary job does not become available. Should I go ahead and call preschools? If I don't call soon I know jobs will be gone by mid summer so I really need to line up a back up plan.
