worriedbeehere11 :  Honestly I find this who situation so bizarre and unless I was desperate I would probably stay clear.  They didn’t look at your cv or interview you properly, what kind of school hires teachers like that?!  And messaging you over whatsapp? So unprofessional. 

What reasons did you give for turning down the job?

“Thinking about you and this job” this sounds so weird!

That does not sound like a school I would want to work for. If they’re that disorganized in the interview process, just imagine how they’ll be through the school year. Do you trust that principal’s ability to manage a school? I didn’t even meet her and I definitely wouldn’t trust her. That job sounds like a dumpster fire.

worriedbeehere11 :  Why is she communicating with you via WhatsApp? That’s super weird, like why not just use a professional email?

I’m a recruiter so of course we try to find out if there’s anything we can do to “win” over a candidate after they reject, but her message was super creepy “thinking about you and this job” wtf.

Also really weird that they’re this desperate to hire you when they really haven’t even seen your credentials or reviewed your resume, and I assume they have not done any reference checks.

I would imagine they have terrible turnover at this school and for a good reason.

I’m assuming this is not in the US?

Something is definitely weird about this. How much have you looked into the school? Is it actually a proper, accredited school?

totally weird and unprofessional. wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t take it. that said, if you are interested, maybe you can schedule a proper meeting with her this week to go over your questions and concerns to see if they can be worked out.
