  Hi! I’m in my 5th year of teaching. I would do both. I would sub in the district that will eventually have the agriculture job open, but also keep looking and maybe even sub in another district or two (I don’t know what school districts are like around you, but I live in a place where there are a ton of school districts in a small area).

  Also, try to make connections wherever you go. For one kindergarten job last year, we had 400 applicants. With the way teaching is going these days (especially if it’s more specialized than, say, teaching 3rd grade), you have to know somebody to get the job. They’re going to be looking for experience and reference. If something long term ever comes up and it’s offered to you, take it. Even if you’re offered a sub job that’s not necessarily what you want to teach, but you’re able to do it, I would. Anything helps!

  Good luck! Teaching is a really rewarding career…I love it :-).

Subbing is a GREAT way to get yourself known around the school.  And you never know what can result out of it or when a part time sub job will turn into long term, into a career (as happened to my bf)

But I think you need to keep all your options open.  I was paitently waiting for a biology job to open at my former high school and almost turned down my current job hoping to get it.   if i had, I may have not even have gotten a job!   I would definitely just keep your options open so you dont end up without a job

Also use the time to take some classes!  The more you can pad your resume, the better
