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!
