Re: Job offer advice
When I've looked at the job boards, this year looks better (or at least on par) than many in the past ten years (with the exception of last year; there were a ton last year). I turned down the first job offered to me (actually, I waited too long to accept and they had offered it someone else) and ended up in a position that was not nearly as great. If the offer is good, even thought it is elementary, you might take it.
I will caution you on what some others are advising. You can accept and then resign 45 days before the first day of school. In a normal year, that would be around July 4. Not this year. My school district just voted last night for our first day to be August 3. That gives current employees until the end of this week to resign.
