Those are quite the lists, looks like it's going to be a tough decision. I can only tell you to go with your gut feeling.

When I graduated and was applying for teaching jobs (I was a sec. education major with emphasis in chemistry and physics) there were several schools that offered me a job. The first place I interviewed was a middle school.

I never wanted to teach at the middle school level but I thought I would use the school as a practice interview for the later ones. The job was teaching 8th grade science which is pretty challenging and the school was nice but the principal was an amazing woman.

I interviewed at several other schools and all of them had their positives, at one I was to go right into teaching physics which is kind of unheard of. At the other I would get an AP chem class which is rare too.

It was tough but my gut said that working at the middle school, although not what I originally wanted, would be the best situation. I went with my gut and didn't regret it.

Good luck in your choice.

YOu have to be happy with what you end up doing. You said with Nike you'd get tired of it after a while.. so that's somethign to keep in m ind.

Good benefits and great people are a positive thing.. if you can cope with the weather, I'd probably go for Gillette.. but that's just my opinion :)
