Teaching Job Just Cut! : (-UPDATE

I got shocking and awful news from my school today!  They are cutting my job!  I'm a Basic Skills teacher and the board decided to eliminate the program!  I'm not tenured yet, so there's not much the Union can do for me! I am devastated!  I got good evaluations, and it has nothing to do with me as a teacher, but I  feel like a FAILURE!  This happened at my last job too!  I feel like it's me, and I feel ashamed!

Also, the chances of finding another teaching job this late in the summer are nil! 

Please pray for me!  I am so distraught over all this!



I'm a single mom! I NEED a job! : ( And I love teaching!

Update- Well I wasn't able to find another teaching job. Today is the teachers' in service and tomorrow school starts for the students. I AM SO BUMMED OUT! I have a knot in the pit of my stomach! : (

I can't afford to live on a subs salary and if I get a job outside of teaching, I'll probably be working for minimum wage! I'm so devastated!

Please pray for me!

Oh man that's horrible. You have to get certified in a core subject because even teaching jobs aren't for certain any more. Can you look into any tutoring centers, etc? Maybe sub for the year? Sorry you have to deal with this.

I have good evaluations.  The cuts are for financial reasons.  It still sucks!

They just let you know this now? That's horrible. My district must cut any positions by March 23 of the previous school year. They can only let you go in August if you're fired. You could have been hunting all summer.

My advice, get your SPED endorsement. It's a high need in our field.
