I verbally accepted a teaching position in a small district that will require me to have a longer commute. The same day I was offered this position I received a phone call from my dream district to set up an interview. The interview is tomorrow! If I am offered a job in my preferred district can I take it? Am I obligated to teach in the smaller district? I have not signed a contract with the smaller district yet, that appointment is next week. TIA!

Applying for open positions seems like an exercise in futility this summer. I took a non-teaching (but still education related) position when COVID-19 hit because our hiring at my district stopped and contracted due to funding. Now that we're gearing up for the fall, I've applied to all open positions within my certification, and so far not one single request for an interview and 2 pos closed. A colleague at my current job applied to two, and got a job offer within two weeks. I have an MEd?

I finished my student teaching in the beginning of May. I’ve been applying to positions ever since. I got a job offer in my first choice grade level but it’s a 45 minute drive. I’m feeling overwhelmed that if I don’t take this job I might not get another offer. My husband says this school is too far and to look for a job closer. There aren’t many jobs around the Central Valley. Does anyone else commute to work? Will 45 minutes get exhausting?

Dilemma: I applied for a high school position. It looks like it went to someone else. I was contacted by the principal of another high school, same school district. This principal really wanted me to sit for an interview. Problem, though, is there is a TOXIC teacher in the department who I use to work with. So, I declined the interview. I think the principal was shocked. It's a great school. Would you have turned down a job because of ONE person?

I’ve been with my school district for 15 years and had an interview for a different district. They offered me a position but only pay 1 year to every 2 you’ve been teaching for. I had to turn it down since it would be a $12,000 pay cut! Only in education you get penalized for trying to make a career change; seems other types of careers; they will pay you more or at least for your experience. We get a slap in the face for our worth..... doesn’t seem right how the system works for us....
