    So here's the deal..
    Thursday I interviewed for a k position at school A. The current teacher accepted a job as a reading specialist in another district. I have a friend who is a teacher at this school and another who is covering a maternity leave for someone who works in the office. I haven't heard anything yet and they said they haven't heard that anyone has been offered the job yet. (the current teacher leaves this friday!!)
    Today I get a phone call from a different district, let's call it district B, asking if I would like a long term sub position for 12 weeks. I would love this but I would really love the permanent job more of course!!

    So, now what? I don't want to call school A as I feel it has been too soon. I also don't want to turn down the long term sub position and then not get the job at school A. As then I would be left with nothing.

    I'm really not sure what to do..

    Would it be rude to email the p of school A and tell them I got another offer but that school A is my first choice and I'm just wondering if they have made a decision yet

    See if you can stall School B until School A lets you know something. Ask for time to think it over.

    Take the long-term sub job and when and if you get the other job take that one since it is permanent. That just happened to my bestfriend 2 weeks ago. She started a LTS early September and was offered a TK position at a different district. She took it. Both districts were great about it. She left sub plans/lessons for her replacement. Her old school colleagues were so helpful in setting up her class because she had subbed for all of them and has been trying for 4 years to get her own classroom.

    Take the sure thing but keep looking for your own classroom.

    Good luck:)
