Hey all, I'm a recent graduate and was hired to teach at a great school. After I was hired, the principal said she'd contact me soon about signing a contract. This happened about a week ago. Just this morning, I looked at my district's job board and the position I've already accepted was posted. I'm thinking it may be a requirement to post the position. (I was hired after a job fair and the position was never officially posted before they hired me). However, I'm wondering if my oral contract is enough to rely on. I'm thinking of calling the principal, but I don't want to jump the gun and sound like I don't trust her word. In general, are oral contracts usually honored? Do you think I need to call the principal right away or should I relax a little and wait for a contract? Thanks, G.L.
