Today I was offered a job as a teaching assistant in a montessori school's toddler room. The problem is, I am unsure if I should accept the position due to the pay. They offered me $9 a hour without benefits for a 9-5 day (some days I will be there 9-3). Is this typical pay for a Montesorri school? I'm unsure if I should continue to sub in public schools (~$100/day 3 days a week) which I have been doing for about a year now or accept the position. Which will look better on my resume in the long run? I am dually certified in Birth-2nd grade and 1st-6th grade and have my masters in 1st -6th grade in NY. I have been told multiple times in interviews that I "lack the necessary experience" to be a gen ed elementary teacher. Would a TA in a Montessori be appropriate experience if my long term goal is to teach in a general education setting in a public school? Thanks for your input!
