As I mentioned last week, Tim got a message from Salem about a potential recall, though the voicemail didn't come through until 12 days after they'd called.
Here's the scoop. The district may have some elementary PE jobs opening up, but Tim's endorsements are for middle and high school. Salem wondered if he'd be interested in getting his elementary endorsement. If so, then he'd be eligible for the potential elementary jobs. He'd work under what is basically a temporary endorsement and would have to complete the schooling for a permanent endorsement within a set amount of time.
Tim's going to find out exactly how many classes it would take to get the elementary endorsement and see if the district offers tuition reimbursement for those classes. If there is no tuition reimbursement, then he won't pursue it. Considering that we've been paying off school debt for years and still have a big chunk left, we're not willing to pay for more schooling for a job that would be on the same pay scale he's already on. If the district would provide tuition reimbursement, then we'll consider it. He doesn't necessarily have a desire to teach elementary, which is why he didn't pursue that endorsement in the first place, but it would open up some other job possibilities.
So, that's that. Not exactly what we were hoping for, but it's nice they threw the option on the table.
