Hi there! I am a primary school teacher who has been doing relief work for the past year (since I graduated). Recently finished a two week contract in a school and they've offered me a Term 3 contract as an integration aide. It's full time and I'd be working with students in lower secondary.

I'd like to do it but I want to apply for full time classroom teacher positions for next year and not sure how principals would view it? Integration work would be great as I'd develop my skills in working with special needs kids but I don't want to take it if it would hurt my future career prospects. (The lesser pay isn't a concern for me.)

Am I better off continuing with CRT work?

Any advice is much appreciated!
