My district got some baaaaaaaaad news yesterday. Folks are retiring from big positions and they're not refilling them, all temporary teachers and interns are going to be laid-off, schools are closing, they're contemplating unlimited class-size in the high-school and yesterday the principal announced he's been "reassigned." Time to get out. Thankfully I signed up for 12 month pay which means that I'll at least get a tiny paycheck for July and August, which is something while I look for work. I guess that will begin in May. I doubt I'm going to find a part-time teaching position, but I'll ask my house principal if she thinks I could get a couple of classes next year. I want to stay in the running for that culinary school, should it happen.
Now I need to be thinking about what it is I'd like to do, knowing that it's difficult to find something, that I like to have a school-year schedule (who wouldn't) and that I need to be thinking long-term.
