@sunkissed19:  I never count on having a job unless I have it in writing. Talking is all fine and dandy, but without that offer letter it means nothing. I was once told I got a job during the interview and I didn’t end up getting it in the end. Normally I don’t advocate follow-ups, but in the case, I would.

@sunkissed19:  For sure. And they say it’s always easier to find the next job while you’re still employed, so hopefully this will be a stepping stone position.  Congrats!

@sunkissed19:  It’s good to get into a good school and district even if it is just temporary. Shine this year so that the Principal/Superintendent will not want to let you slip out of their hands for another school district. Another tip is get involved in the school and district community. If there are any volunteer opportunities after school, take them. The more exposure and committment you show, the more likely they’ll want to keep you around

I was a temporary sub for a year long maternity leave and it turned into another maternity leave position the next year. It would have turned into a permanent position the third year but I was moving to another state with my FI so it was too late.

Congratulations! Good Luck 🙂

@sunkissed19:  I definitely think that if it goes well and you’re a good fit for the school, it could turn into a more permanent position! A friend of mine ended up getting a long term sub job at the place she did her student teaching, and this year she is a legit teacher with another grade at the same school. Don’t stress, and congrats!

@MrsPanda99:  I hear you, my husband interviewed for a job that paid really well and I met him right after and he was ecstatic and said he was told he got the job, he just had to be on the phone again with other people in the company in a few days. His reception was terrible and they couldn’t really hear him so they planned on rescheduling the call. They later told him they went with someone else. Pretty messed up. You always get it in writing or else you’re not hired yet :/

A friend of mine took a maternity position in a school, and then the woman decided she wanted to be a SAHM and never came back.  You never know what might happen! Congratulations!

@sunkissed19:  I started as a maternity leave replacement and this fall will be my 3rd year with my district (I’m permanent now)! I know that in my district, they LOVE to hire long term replacements for the next year.

 

You can always hope the woman doesnt come back – or takes another year off. Just be sure to build a relationship with your administrators & I’m sure they will hire you back in in the fall if there’s availability! Good luck and congrats!!!!
