…it all gets turned upside down. I was recently told I am being laid off at the end of this month. Due to a very low enrollment for the upcoming fall semester starting in September, my school has to cut a teacher. I drew the short straw, so to speak.
It also came to light that a few select parents had a negative view of me from the beginning – without good reason. Sure, I made a few small mistakes when I began teaching at Poly, but I was adjusting to a very different work environment than my previous school. I guess those small mistakes were enough to make a few parents dislike me. They also seem to have held a grudge because of them.
So now, eight months into my new school I have to look again.
