Okay, I really need some imput here. I was offered a third grade job at a private school about 10 minutes ago. I have until tomorrow afternoon to give them an answer. Pros: It is a certain job My son who has Cystic Fibrosis could come with me (The CF is important because he takes meds at school.) I would only have about 16 kids in my class 45 minutes of prep time a day (plus one hour of lunch and 30 minutes of recess) It is 5 minutes from my house Cons: The money is about 30% less than I would make at a public school. But there have been very few elementary jobs posted around here, and I only have middle school experience. What should I do? Do I take the job that is offered or turn it down and hope SOMETHING else comes up? I am a terrible gambler, and I don't know what to do. Oh yeah, school starts on Aug, 13th here so tick, tock! What would you do?
