Hello everyone, I am a new teacher, fresh out of graduate school. So the situation is a bit complicated. I am overwhelmed and my anxiety is not helping me better. This is what happened. On Wednesday, I received a call from school A after the interview on the day before for a High School Math Teacher position. They did not hire me. He (my recruiter) told me that they really liked me, but I needed more experience, so they offered a position as a math co teacher for middle school with a salary of $18/hour, full time. I accepted right away because July was ending and I had depression of not being able to find a job. (Yes, I even took pills to calm my anxiety down). However, on Thursday (the day after I accepted the offer with school A). Another school B called me and offered me a full time teaching position as a High School Math lead teacher and the salary is 52,000$ a year with 5000$ signing bonus for being a MATH teacher. I am very happy to be given the second offer of having my own classroom. I know that I am going to decline the first job offer as a co-teacher at School A, but not sure how. I am wondering if any of you could give me any advise to decline the offer. Will it make me a bad person for declining an offer that they had thought for me to help me? I have not signed any contract yet, it was a just a verbal acceptance over the phone. I am just scared that the principals and the other interviewers will talk about my situation and made me look really bad in the future. Thank you so much!
