The rantings of a teacher who retired from the classroom but not from education.
That happened to me last year... my contract was not renewed because I was not a good fit. (Read: too expensive because I had experience and an extra degree.)I and 5 others were replaced with people with no experience. The remains of my old math department are PISSED at admin.I was hired by a school in another district that pays better, let's me teach MY way, and has classes in the low teens instead of the low 30s. Only downside is a longer commute.And my new school has scores that make it one of the top 5 in the state. Not a good fit... well, I suppose... if striving for excellence isn't your thing ...
I'm happy you found a place to be happy and appreciated. Everyone deserves that.
