I received my K-6 licensure this spring in TN and have been looking for a full time position in the Nashville area. I have interviewed 11 times so far and been rejected every time-expect for one (but the school was very far away/not ideal) . Its 2 and 1/2 weeks before school starts now and I just got offered an 3rd grade interim position, for a teacher thats going on maternity leave. Its kind of frustrating, considering there was also a full time position open that I did not get. I really like the school though and its only 3 miles from my house. I'm going to take the interim position, but obviously am concerned since its only for 6 weeks. What would you do? Does anyone have interim experience? And if so what did you do once the interim position ended? Sub? Also, should I still continue to apply for full time positions now? I know theres always the chance that the teacher will not return from maternity leave or the school will end up needing to hire another teacher (they hinted at this), but with my luck I doubt that will happen. Any advice, or stories from past interim experiences would be very helpful. Its obviously nice to get offered a position, but a 6 week job doesn't make me feel secure at all or give me the same satisfaction as getting my own classroom. Thank you!!!!
