I'm never sure where to put this one in. Bear with me, I've been MIA for a while. I REALLY want to go back to public school... but the interviews I've had this year have been less than productive. HOWEVER, it's getting to be that registration/finalizing numbers/passing budget time, so more classrooms are bound to open up. (Especially the state-funded PreK that school districts can't actually hire for until the budget gets finalized) I have a job next year, teaching at the same place I am this year. My co-teacher who I didn't mesh at ALL with is moving up with the kids, I'm staying put, and they've hired a new co-teacher, who I think I can get along with. They've promised me better hours if I return. But I really want public school! My principal/director wants a firm commitment in writing by Friday about what I'm doing next year, so she knows whether she has to hire a second teacher or not. I hate to leave what's going to be a better situation... but I don't want to give up a chance to go public... but I also don't want to quit and then NOT find something! What do I do!?!?!
