I worked at a daycare until Friday as a head teacher in the toddler room. I quit so that I could sub full-time this school year. Friday the director called me into her office and offered me a preschool teaching position at the daycare because they are expanding the center and she really needs one more teacher. I am conflicted on what to do. She is offering me more money to take this position, and it would be much more than I would be making subbing. I really want a classroom teaching position and I'm wondering if subbing or being a preschool teacher looks better to schools? I just don't know what to do and I have heard varying things from teachers around here about schools that do or do not hire their substitutes and that some schools like to see continuous employment in one place (such as the preschool position). The cons to continue working at the daycare would be the environment. I worked with a lot of uneducated people who do not take their jobs seriously; they call in whenever they feel like it leaving others to pick up their slack, they gossip endlessly, and most do not like me. The pros would be I would actually be able to teach! With my toddlers I was beginning to teach them their letters and it was so fun having them point of their letters wherever we were. With preschoolers I could still do this and even on a greater scale. The room is new so I would get to set it up exactly how I want and get to put together all my materials. And, a few of my toddlers are moving up into that room soon so I would already know some of the kids. I have to let the director know sometime this week what I want to do and I keep going back and forth. Sorry this is so long, I would appreciate any advice, suggestions, etc.
