Hello again, First of all thank you to those of you who have responded to my previous topics, thank you. I've been asking for advice from multiple people and it's good to have multiple forms of input. I have one year of teaching experience but was non-renewed. As the summer draws to a close, I have two more interviews lined up but I'm feeling they're my last shot at something full-time as a regular teacher. Bottom line is: I cannot support myself on sub pay where I'm at. I have considered working full time at educational textbook companies to be able to support myself financially, then reapplying for teaching jobs the following year. My question is: is taking a tangentially related position like working for an educational textbook company a bad thing before looking for full-time jobs the next year? Is it better than working at some other, non-education-related career, then going back to teaching? Thanks!
