Has anyone done this to get their teaching position? I'm thinking of not returning to my current job as a private pre-k teacher to sub for a couple ideal districts in my area this fall (that is, if I don't get a full time teach pos. with one of them ahead of time). I can't decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I've subbed for one of these districts right after my student teaching, before I got my current position. Can sub teaching hurt or help you? I've heard it be said both ways. What do you guys think? I would think it would help because you can network and make connections, plus you're in their system already. But then I heard it can hurt because you'll "only be seen as a sub teacher"...?? Do districts like to hire subs qualified for teaching positions?
