Hi everyone, I'm new here, and I'm in need of advice. I received my credential in December, so I am now looking for my first full time teaching gig. I received a job offer over the phone this past Friday from a Jr. High school district. The district is definitely not my first choice, so I asked for time to think about it. They asked if I could respond by Monday to allow them time to move on to the next candidate. I said I would do that. The problem now is that 5 minutes after that phone call, I received an email from the high school I desperately want to work at. They asked if I was available Tuesday for an interview, and I said I was. Horrible timing I guess. This high school is my first choice. I covered a maternity leave there for the first semester of the 2016-2017 school year and loved it. I have a few of the department teacher's backing me for this position along with the department chair, but there are also other candidates that will be interviewed that would be transfers from another high school in the district. I believe they receive priority. I'm definitely going to the interview on Tuesday, but what should I say to the Jr. High when I call tomorrow? I don't want to be without a job in August, but I also don't want to miss an opportunity to work at the school of my choice, even though I know my chances are slim since I'll be up against transfers that are more experienced. What do you do when you have to respond to an offer at the worst timing?
