My hubsand says that it's career suicide if I try to get a job as an aide. The city where I want to live in do not really hire many teachers. In addition, with this wonderful budget cut and pink slips going on, I'm having a very hard time finding elementary school openings in my dream town. So..... I got a call today from a school nearby my dream town. It's for a para-educator position in a special ed classroom. Is this something I should pursue. Pay is pretty lousy and would make more subbing. But I do not like the idea of subbing. I tried it and it wasn't terrible, but I need consistency and routine. What do you guys think?
