I have been a special education early childhood teacher for the last 2 years. I love the kids I have and I love my classroom. it is excatly everything ive ever wanted. However, I have some issues with my boss listening to me and just not seeing eye to eye on stuff. She thinks im a great teacher- she gives me excellent reports everytime i get my evaluations. However, she never comes by and doesnt really seem to care. She showed up to a meeting once when i was asking for a personal aide for a child and gave her advice on a child without knowing anything about them! After being legally over my numbers this year and not getting any relief, I finally decided I deserve better. I applied to a job in a nearby district. Unfourtantly it was already filled. I get a call today from a priniciapl in a nearby district and was wondering if I would be interested in an opening. She doesnt know if I am qualified to teach it, however told me she would check and we set up a time on monday to talk. when would you decide to change jobs? Would it be only a money issue or would it be if your truely happy or not? I am happy, but not 100 percent. I know if i do get offered this position, i would make more money, not sure on how much. my friends husband told me never accept a new job offer unless you make 30 percent more...but this is the education field and that cannot be true for this field. any advice?
