    I just received a call (yes, on a Sunday!) for an interview tomorrow. It's for a private school. The K teacher resigned last minute & they want to hire someone ASAP. The P said my resume jumped out because of my teaching experience & the fact that I have children of my own.

    Cons: It's about 20 miles from where I live.
    Private school=stinky pay
    Not much time to prepare
    It means removing myself from local sub lists

    Pros: It's a job!!!!!
    The school lets out over an hour before my daughters' schools, which means even with the distance, I can be home before them.
    Experience
    Stinky pay beats no pay at all


    Also, I know a teacher who is going on maternity leave in my district starting in November. She requested me, but she doesn't get to make the decision. If I am offered this job, should I call the P to find out if I am in the running for the LTS job? I don't want to sound too pushy....let me know what you think!

    Good luck! And you're right, stinky pay is better than no pay. Plus the experience would be more valuable on your resume.

    As far as the possible LTS thing I probably wouldn't ask. The P can't give you a firm answer this far in advance. I mean I guess it doesn't hurt to ask, but I just don't see the point.
