I'm in a sticky situation now. I was hired in the fall to work as the full-time math teacher for my grade. I'm a brand new teacher on the alternative route. The problem is that my public school district has budget issues and hasn't been able to let me sign my contract. Right now, I'm officially getting paid as a sub. I've sent a few emails to the people in HR but haven't heard anything back. I don't want to create problems and contact the union, but not having benefits and real teacher pay (however low) is very aggravating. What do you think I should do?
