The principal needs to call the...

SS heads up

Goodenough85 is right. Be sure you check your options before you get vested in a state retirement plan in those listed states.

We meet with our financial advisor once or twice a year, to check on holdings and see if we need to do any adjusting. We've also done a bit of profit taking while the market is up, stashing any...

Often the application

for the position will say how many letters or how many people to list as contacts for recommendations. It may also specify who to include to provide letters. Sometimes the previous principal is...

It may well be that

the principal there will contact your current principal when reviewing applications. I have a firm policy of not embarrassing my principal, not leaving him/her in ignorance of classroom or personnel...

Are you asking

because you suspect you have been banned from a school?

I haven't been blocked from any schools so I can't answer based on my experiences, but you might be able to find other experiences by going...

Nancy Lee

I'm guessing the look back of 2 years considers people who file taxes late, enter appeals, etc.

Given the publicized precarious state of social security and medicare (yes, because the feds have...

I was supposed

to be paid 25% cash for unused sick leave, but there was a reimbursement cap on the total to be paid in any year and so many retired in my year that we each got less then 15%. I sincerely wish I'd...

That reply might be worth a letter to board members as an example of why their district has difficulty getting subs. I'd include why you decided against taking the less than generous offer of short...

practice on the test format

the a)5 b)6 c)7 would be very helpful for your students before they have to figure out what that format means during a test.

You may want to consider

Would a position

in the central office administrating special education be of interest to and provide influence for you?

his papa's apron from when he was a cook on boats on the Great Lakes. DH wears it when he barbecues. But he does cook a lot of dinners without an apron. Thank goodness or we'd starve!
