Too many grades

I have been at my school for 20 years come September and during that time, I have taught at least 6 different grades. Each position, with the exception of one, has been for multiple years. (the longest being 5 years)
My question is this... there is a chance that my school could close within a year or two (I am at a Catholic school in NJ) and I am trying to update my resume. Is having too many positions going to hurt or help me?

You've been at the same school the whole time, but have been assigned to different grade levels there. I think it will help you! You are reliable and flexible, and experienced with many grades.

The district where my daughter goes to school, wants flexible people. You may teacher 3rd for 4 years then get bumped to 5th. My daughter's 5th grade teacher moved to kindergarten the next year because of need and an wanting to do the change.

The teachers at her school get moved to different grades when there is a need. Her principal would much rather see someone with experience in different grade levels, than someone with 15 years teaching 1st. You may get hired for 1st, but no way are you staying there for the next 10 years (usually).

I see no downside right now.

Thanks. I've asked people who know me, but it's nice to hear the same thing from other teachers.
