Hello, I am new to this forum and a new teacher as well. I am in a bit of a predicament and I need some professional advice from teachers. I am newly certified to teach art K-12 and have experience teaching elementary from internship and subbing. I had an interview in a small town that went very well. They basically offered me the job that day but I told them I am looking at another school in another district. They gave me a few days and called me today to offer me the position. Unfortunately the second school couldn't interview with me sooner so I have one scheduled with then in two days. When the first school called to offer me the job I told them of my upcoming interview and they proceeded to give me 2 hours to make a decision and call back. So I called back and accepted their offer because this would be my first year teaching and I need to take what I can get. Tomorrow is their board meeting for approval which they said shouldn't be a problem with clearing me and that I should come in later this week to get keys to my room and I'm assuming fill out paperwork. My interview at the second school is still scheduled as of now. Honestly, I would prefer working at the second school because it pays almost 10k more a year and I would only be teaching elementary which I'm most comfortable with, whereas the first school is elementary and high school. Is it ok to proceed to my interview and scope it out before I report to the first school? And if the second school offers me the job is it ok to go back and decline my first offer that I already verbally accepted? It is very close to school starting and I would hate to screw the first school over, but shouldn't I do what is best for me? Help, please!
