Oh decisions... I interviewed at a job that really was kind of advertised incompletely...it is a maternity leave position that after the teacher comes back becomes part-time....so it's also only a year thing. Anyways I wouldn't probably have applied if I had known that, but I got an interview and they did explain the situation and I went ahead with the interview anyway. The interview was super chill, the principal seems very relaxed, funny, I felt way over dressed....(I mentioned this in another thread) and I really enjoyed talking to the music teacher (she and I have really similar philosophies coincidentally and we definitely bonded over that lol) The community is very rural and not a lot of money, similar to where I grew up, they have very strong traditions which the music teacher is very much a part of. She's been there for 10 years and it seems like she does a really good job. Anyways, I wouldn't say the schools themselves are amazing, they definitely do not score high, but it sounds like a community where I could fit in (I feel more and more that I don't fit in where I am right now) and the area is really beautiful...I'm a sucker for pretty outdoors I think if it's between my current job and there, considering that I'd be applying again in a year in either situation, I think there is better because applying to new jobs will be much easier in a year long position where they understand I have to work somewhere the following year! As opposed to my current job where I got very much on the wrong side of my boss by mentioning that I was looking elsewhere....I really WANT to get out of where I am. But so...I have yet to hear back from one place that called one of my references (though I've emailed a couple times and no response) I JUST got a tip about a K-3 (yay!) job in an area I'd be really interested in. I have another interview on Tuesday for another great job description and another good area. It's hard to decide what I should do...would love to hear from some folks with some experience with this kind of thing, potentially taking a non-permanent position over continuing applying for permanent ones.
