I'm in the exact same boat so I know exactly how you feel! This should be my third year, but I've had such bad luck finding a job. My first year I was hired two days before school as a 5th grade ELA...

I talked to a teacher friend who said she would be worried about the school holding my certificate and taking it to the board of education to be suspended if I resign early. I...

The duty assigned after school is apart of my contracted hours. I start about 45 minutes later than everyone else in the building. It didn't occur to me to ask why this was, as I saw all the other...

Thank you, C6g!
That was another concern I had, but that sounds like exactly the right response if asked about why I left the position so quickly. I'll keep everyone updated! I emailed P to remind...

It's not a contract position, so at least there isn't that to worry about. I consider myself a reasonable person, but was worried maybe I was overreacting. So it's reassuring to see that I'm not the...

From what I was told, I would have to apply for a license extension. So this year would not count and if I got a teaching job next year, that would be my "official" third year.

It does not meet the credential because they have hired me on as the equivalent of a media clerk. I've been there about a week now and it's been a mess. No one has told me what I need to be doing in...

How would you respond to this?

Have you ever had a student ask you "why?" when you asked them to complete a task, move seats, etc? And what's your response?

He's not genuinely interested in why. He's trying to push me. This...
