Go with the paid option. If they aren’t willing to throw cash behind a role - they aren’t willing to attract and develop top talent. Secondly, the VC arm of a PE fund is usually the red headed step child - they probably didn’t get budget approval for funded headcount… seems alluring but don’t do it

Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom.
