Thank you to those who weighed in when I was considering resigning my position. Your input helped me come to the decision I needed... so I resigned. It has been a hard couple of days. Emotions are high. I did come to love my coworkers, and familiarity is comforting. But ultimately I’m ready to be done with the place. The day after I gave notice, they fired an employee without warning. Better to get out now! That brings us to now. I was content to go to the sub in-service day in 2 weeks, and work on new certifications. I saw a posting today, however, in my subject area, meant to last the whole first semester. It will be FTE, so not technically subbing, no matter where they start me out pay-wise, I’ll be making much more than I would’ve as a sub. I just wanted to get a quick question or two out there about how many people have had temporary, one-semester positions turn into permanent positions. I don’t know the nature of why this is one semester. Illness most likely. With the position also starting up on the 26th, and the posting just went up a day or two ago, would you imagine that they’re in a crunch to find someone to cover in such short notice? Especially someone who already lives in this rural area, with the certification and experience, who’s willing to take only one semester? Can this be a good way to get my name out in the district? And maybe let admins know that I’m willing to work on adding new certifications?
