    I have a long term sub coming up that has been planned since the summer. The teacher is going on maternity leave in about two weeks. My question is if you got offered a full time teaching position would you cancel the sub job? I would hate to bail but don't you think the teacher would understand. I only ask because I'm still applying for jobs and a few have come up this week that I'm qualified for. I know I would feel bad but this is my second year subbing and I have only gotten three interviews in the last two years. Anyway I just wanted to know if anyone has been in that type of situation.

    The teacher will understand. A full-time, permanent position trumps a sub position.

    If I was offered the position, I would talk with the teacher before accepting. Maybe you can even explain the situation to her beforehand and she can have a number two person lined up.

    Here, it is understood that if a long term sub is offered a permanent contract position, they are released from the long term assignment with sincere best wishes and congratulations!

    By all means take the full-time position.

    I have cancelled a long-term sub position for a fulltime position. I think any teacher would understand.
