Hi Everyone, This is my first post. I've been reading the boards alot and now have my first situation to ask for help on. Last year was my first year teaching music full time at the middle school level (right out of college)--I loved it I worked with such great students. Unfortunately, near the end of the school year I was informed that due to budget cuts my position was being cut to a .6 (3 classes a day instead of 5). Very sad news, but I was still happy to be employed at all. I was informed the other day that an elementary music teacher in my district had accepted a retirement incentive and will not be back in September. The school called and told me that I had two options. 1.) Join the elementary school full time 2.) Teach at the elementary school in the morning and teach the 3 middle school classes I was scheduled to teach -----Both options I would be a full time teacher!!! I have been going back and forth on which option to take. Part of me wants to go back to the middle school because I know alot of the kids from last year and have made friends with the faculty. The other part says that it would be really annoying to travel during the day (10 min drive) and I wouldn't really feel part of any faculty if I was always coming and going. Any advice on helping me make the decision (I have until Monday) would be great! Thanks.
