Most of you know that I quit my private school job and moving states. I have two opportunities for the fall: Subbing or being an assistant. The assistant job is more money plus benefits, and as we all know, the subbing job is not much money (about 90$ a day) no benefits, no holidays, etc. My issue is that does it look poorly for me to take an assistant position after being a department head and lead teacher? I am right now working on state certification (was in private, and it wasn't required) and should be finished next summer. I need the money (don't we all??) but I don't want to take the job if it is going to hurt my chances of getting a head teacher position when I am able. Will people look at my resume and say, wow, from department head to assistant! what happened?!?!?
