These are tough times for all schools in all parts of the country, for sure. When I started teaching in 1994, the economic climate was similar to how it is now and it was the WORST time to land a teaching position, let alone KEEP one at a particular site. Just know that I've seen this tide rise every 7-10 or so years. Now more than ever, though, teachers need to encourage each other to fight the good fight,effect policy change for kids and most importantly know that they ARE respected and appreciated.
Best of luck to you!
I totally agree. Thanks for the great words of encouragement!
