Three Words

Something must change
Big disaster today
Days are numbered
More vacation please
I miss Guatemala
New career needed
New direction wanted
Future so uncertain

(inspired by a flickr group challenge)

I could have written this post. Just know that there's someone out here who has a bit of clue how you feel. Sleep well tonight. Please.

I have no idea on what terms you left your old school, if you can even return mid-year- BUT- I would look into it.

Get the hell out of there- dump them before them dump you.

Better to leave on your terms than have a bad write-up or get fired.
Of course, you can also collect unemployment if they get rid of you.

I take it you did not apply for a leave when you left the DoE. Someone should have advised you better.

What you can do is sub in your local schools--including elementary schools--and that might get you a foot in the door. I did that when I was laid off. And, with teachers going out on maternity, you just might land a long-term position with benefits!!

Tell them you left the DoE to work in a Charter school and that you worked sometimes til 9pm and it was killing your personal life. No lie there!!
