Hi All
I received a non re-elect during my 2nd year probation, but advised to resign which I did due to a poor stull. I am currently applying at other school districts but I have been hesitant to submit my application due the question regarding resigning due to a non re-elect.Please advise, is there life after non re-elect? Thanks

Keep trying! I know a young teacher who was asked to leave after just a few weeks and we all advised her not to even include that in her resume because it was so short. She ignored us and did. The superintendent interviewed her and heard the whole story and reassured her they would never treat her so unfairly. She was hired! I wouldn't go into detail if you don't have to, but go for it.

My neighbor is a principal and worked in admin in the district office in the most prestigious district in my area. He quit to become a principal because he knew how cruddy they really were. SO imagine you were applying to him and you came from that cruddy district.

There are so many scenarios. Go For It.

THANK YOU for your encouragement, it is appreciated its been devastating to receive the non re-elect after all the hard work and sleepless nights. But regarding the application, do I simply fill in a "no" to those questions?

2 non re elects, resigned from 3 separate contracted positions. Im teaching full time again.

Don't worry. Don't go into detail about past jobs.

Good luck. Be confident and likable.

Just be honest with yourself and state what you think is right on the application. If a school likes you and you have the right cert. you will be hired.

I was non-renewed from two different schools due to reduction in force/budget cuts..However, I started working in a new school in Sept. and it is awful.
I had my first observation and it was a disaster.

I knew right away that I wasn't a good fit in this school and I know I will be non-renewed, but I can't go through it again, so I have decided to submit my letter of resignation at the end of this month. I will break contract and give 60 days notice so I won't have to deal with the stress and humiliation of another non-renewal. I will also put resign on my applications next year, but I think I am pretty much done with teaching.

yasinbey, I've been non-reelected to. I hate it too, but I guess you have to answer the application question truthfully. I notice they're VERY specific these days and ask, "Have you ever been non-reelected and resigned?" Yikes. So I guess we have to say YES? I wish we didn't, but I'm sure they can easily find out if we lied.

Yep, NOT A GOOD FIT is usually a nice answer, but what if they ask you to expand on that? I still don't know what the perfect answer is.

Thank your feedback and sharing your experience with a non-re-elect. I've submitted a couple application and if they ask, honesty is the best policy. I felt I needed more time to develop in the profession as I am confident in my skill set. I hope my next admin will allow that.
