I have been trying to get a teaching position but so far all I have been met with is relatives being hired over me, and false interviews (ie. called for a teaching position went in and all they had were assistants). I have been fortunate enough to secure three aide/assistant positions but don't know which one would be my best option A. The school I've been with for past five years. I may be moving out of state for teaching next summer and think it might look the best to keep same employer. However, the principal has made it quite clear that I will be an aide and he doesn't see that changing. B. A new School working as an assistant in a 1:1 situation. This job is closer to home and more money but after hundreds of teachers were cut from this district I don't see them hiring anytime soon. In addition, it would be a change of employment so I'm not sure how that would look on my resume. C. An assistant job at a prek program in a school district I had previously left mid year for financial reasons. This job is hourly based thus the lowest of incomes but may have potential for growth since I'd be in a school district known to hire (although I did leave so not sure how they would feel about having me back) or within the program at a different school. Any advice would help since I think I will have to make a decision soon.
