BEFORE you resign, check the laws of your state about teachers breaking contracts. Some states allow the...

How about

Talking to the prince and suggesting that you be included as a team member BEFORE decisions about moving special needs students into your room take place.

I’d even contemplate using the words...

We’ve mostly used state park campgrounds. They charge $8 to make a reservation per campground but you can do a same day walk in and save that fee. But of course you take a chance on the camps being...

We actually like the bridge from Astoria to Washington, but I was very glad that DH was driving the first time we crossed that 4 mile stretch of water.

Defend yourself

Don't let them move you into doing yourself a disservice. If nothing else, consider what quitting now will do to your retirement. And that may be a part of what they are doing as you are getting...

Some districts allow you to call a sub and set them up to sub for you on a specified date. Then you or a secretary can enter that person as your sub without the job showing on the program at all. ...

At a guess

I think the regular teacher tried to set it up so that you and the students had lots of guidance on doing the work she'd left. It's likely she knew you'd not have time to review any lesson plans...

Long ago

I worked in Los Angeles years after a teacher's strike. There were teachers still not speaking to each other depending whether they went or strike or worked.

I'm very glad none of the teachers...

Hope I didn't

You must feel very frustrated

and I suspect the prince is frustrated too. I would take the suggestions about working with the social/emotional specialists to heart, choose the least touchy-feely one to ask to come into the room...
