I have a difficult situation and hope that you might be able to help. A junior high teacher at a religious private school must go on leave (for personal resons) for the remainder of the year, and this school offered me her position. I have college teaching experience but have never taught the grade or the subjects I will be teaching and I do not have a teaching certificate. However, I like teaching, and the money is good, so I signed a contract last week despite some hesitations regarding my ability to the job well and some weird feelings. After signing the contract, I was given a tour of the school and found myself growing increasingly uncomfortable with my role there, and I have spent much of the time since signing the contract questioning my decision.
I am supposed to begin teaching in a few weeks but am considering backing out of my contract. I certainly do not want to do such a thing, as I am usually very professional, but I cannot get over this fee...See More
