Re: Accepting a job offer but still applying elsewhere
Some people get really bent out of shape about this but it happens. Ultimately you have to do what is best for you. A happy teacher is a better teacher. Finding someone who really wants to be invested in the program should be priority number 1.
Contracts and contract deadlines exist for a reason. Ultimately this is a business. So if it falls within those specified dates or the district is willing to let you out of contract then it's ok.
There will also be someone who will gladly take a last minute gig.
