Loose Ends

So, most of you know about the teaching situation going on with me..the "do i want to teach next year..ever again..etc" blah that i have been playing with.

yesterday, the choice was taken out of my hands.

we have had our budget cut, and guess who will no longer have a job after may 29th?

yep, me.

Im trying to remember that this is a good thing, as i was planning on turning in my resignation over the summer anyway. but its hard. i have to explain to everyone. i have to tell my kids. i have to say goodbye.

and it isnt by my own choice.


*hugs* I'm sorry.

Mike is dealing with the same thing... they're cutting loose somewhere in the number of 100 teachers from Jefferson County. His principal doesn't believe in giving the Special Ed teachers lots of notice, because then Mike might not finish all of his IEPs... so we STILL don't know what is going on.

And Alabama is really fond of pink slipping all the non-tenured teachers and then hiring them back so that they don't become tenured. Really nice, eh?

We're not really too worried about him finding another job because of how badly special ed teachers are needed, but it is stressfull for him not to know where he's working next year or when or for how much.

Teachers get treated like shit.

100 teachers..yikes. i have no idea if anyone else is leaving from here, but i know im the only sped. and thats because i do such a nontraditional job, im the easiest to cut from the budget.

and the special ed coordinator for the district is looking for something for me in district, but who knows if i will want that?

*sigh* this will be a good thing. eventually.
*hugs* I'm so sorrry to hear that...
