I spoke with the principal at the private school this morning about the concerns I had with the contract they gave me and she was very understanding. I have now signed the contract and will be dropping it off on Monday when I pick up my class list and curriculum guides. I guess I'm officially a third grade teacher!! I don't think it's really sunk in yet. I always thought I'd be jumping up and down when I got a job, but I guess since this really isn't exactly what I was looking for I wasn't as excited, but after talking to the principal today about sending letters and supply lists to my students and what-not I'm really looking forward to getting started!
