Because it just might lead to a JOB!!!!!! I got a call less than an hour ago from my ST school offering me a job teaching 6th grade math!!!!!!!!!! No interviews needed. No packet or portfolio submitted to the P. But I was offered the position because of dedication and commitment I had to the kids and the school last year and also because of the reputation I earned subbing at a HS whose P was promoted to Personnel Director. These two men knew my work ethic and that they could count on me to do whatever the school needed, so when a position came open,they called me instead of me calling them. The current position is just interim and part-time (half day), but there is also the possibility of a bus route opening at the school and the Personnel Director said he would still use me as a morning sub at the middle school and/or his former HS as needed. Add that to my 21st Century tutoring position in the afternoon and I will be MORE than working full time (plus still working at the hotel on the weekends).
