To accept or not to accept..
I got a job offer today.
With a school.
Well the thing is that it's not really a teaching position, but more of a paraprofessional position. (Teaching Assistant)
I always complain that I didnt go to school for four and half years only to become an assistant to someone who has my job. I can't help but consider this position though. For obvious reasons. (Or maybe the reasons aren't so obvious?)
I interviewed with this school like a month ago for an actual teaching position, and they were really interested in me. As I was in their school.
However they decided to cancel the position and hire someone in the fall instead. They even let me know ahead of time that they were really considering offering me that same position in the fall.
It was a huge disappointment though. To not get it, I mean.
But when they called me again today, I couldn't help but feel excitement and hopeful.
I haven't made a final decision yet. I still have to talk to madre and padre about this. I called them right away. (I dont know why some people have phones when they never answer them. I called like a million and one people when I found out, and finally got a hold of Mrs.Cullen, who gave me her words of wisdom. )
What do you guys think? Should I or shouldn't I?
I'm working at the Physical therapy place and my beloved call center. But neither are helping me pursue my career oriented goals. This new job position is related to that goal (not to mention it'll pay more). This new job wants me to start next week too. However at the present time, it looks like I wont be working in the summer if I do take this position. I can't be jobless in the summer. I'll go crazy.
Soooooooooo what should I do?
