Feeling torn, need second opinion/outside perspective Hello all, Today I have just been offered my first job offer! It is for an 8th grade position. The principal had kept contact with me because the position had previously closed up due to the teacher choosing to stay at the school rather than transfer out. I had been told by the principal that I made quite an impression on him and he would contact me as soon as he found an opportunity to staff me. Lo and behold, he called me this morning saying he got the official resignation and the position he wanted to offer me is now open! He asked me about my other opportunities at the moment and I mentioned that I have an interview this Thursday with my old middle school that I attended here in my hometown. I told him I am completely interested in the position that he was offering me, but also wanted to meet with my old school to take advantage of the opportunity to interview with them, which he completely understood as he said he did not want to blind-sight me and have me miss out on any opportunities I have at the moment. We agreed that I would call him Friday morning with my decision of my acceptance. What I'm anxious is about the various opportunities I may be wasting, as I absolutely do not want to completely disregard this job offer considering I made a great connection with the principal. However, I'm afraid I may be missing out on something great with my old middle school, which is an amazing district and dream school. I hate feeling torn between these two, but I'm thinking it is more practical to accept what I have just been offered instead of waiting around for an opportunity that is not for sure. Any thoughts? Anyone ever been in this position? I'm very thankful for both opportunities that have been given to me for the interview and the job offer. My mind is just everywhere right now and I figured I could use some input from other experienced educators and job seekers.
