    I called her back and left her a message.

    Did a job come up or is there a file she needs me to locate?

    Or maybe the principal from your dream job has called her for a reference?

    So I talked to her and am going in to talk to her about a job tomorrow. I think it's going to be 1/2 in my subject area and 1/2 I don't know, which is not ideal. It's kinda weird because I said my goodbyes at the school and could only possibly be going back because she offered someone else this job when our positions ended (She offered me something completely out of my subject area and I didn't take it) and that person decided to do something different.

    Tell me it's no time to think of my ego!

    Go in with the idea that you'll consider any offer on the table.

    It's a rough economy. If you're being offered a job, it's certainly worth considering.

    The "Ideal" adn "ego" ships sailed when the economy tanked. If you have to spend the rest of the summer becoming familiar with a different subject area on the high school level, then I say you think seriously about accepting.

    Administrators have long memories. She'll remember that you stepped up when she needed you to do so.

    Thanks for the replies, ya'll!

    I took the job. It was a better offer than I thought. It's Middle school. One class of 6th grade reading by myself, two classes of inclusion in another teacher's class whom I already LOVE, two classes working with the struggling readers I had last year!

    This sounds wonderful and you will love the inclusion model. You might learn some really cool things working with another teacher. Congratulations! What a great day!
