    I have accepted a long term position at a school I really like. However, I would rather have a full time job. I have not told the teacher needing a sub that I am looking for a job because I've just about given up hope at this time of year that I will find a position and I don't want her to dump me in favor of someone who is not job hunting. Now she just asked me to do this past Friday, so it's only been a couple of days so I figure if I do get a job, she still has plenty of time.

    I was talking to her today about the details of the job and she mentions she has not been able to talk to her principal about me because her principal is scrambling to fill a 3rd grade position.

    !!!!!!

    I subbed at the school several times in the spring so the principal should know who I am. However, I'm wondering if it would be wise to contact her to let her know I am still looking for a job and have 3rd grade experience. I don't want to damage any relationships I have at that school.

    What do you think?

    Contact the P and go for the full time job. I'm sure the teacher will understand and she hasn't even talked to the P about it yet anyway.

    I agree. You need to take care of Number One. The LTS position can be your fallback...

    Go for the 3rd Grade position. The LTS position should be option #2.

    A regular, full-time position trumps a long-term sub job.

    Go for the full time job! I think the teacher would understand!
