I have an interview next week for a position at a different district. I’m afraid of leaving my current district because I have tenure but I need to get out of there (Toxic people). What if I get hired at a new district and then they lay me off because of Covid? Should I just stay put? Advice?

I'm thinking about taking a period of absence (maybe the whole school year). I honestly don't care if it means losing my current position at my school, but I'm worried about how it will look wihen applying for teaching positions in the future.

What would you do if a coworker asks you to disclose your salary info so that she can tell another person it, who is applying for a job (thinking since it was my first year and it will be hers and they would be similar)? It automatically made me feel uncomfortable and it’s someone I don’t have a great relationship with, but also don’t want to be on her bad side? How would you feel?

I’ve been with my school district for 15 years and had an interview for a different district. They offered me a position but only pay 1 year to every 2 you’ve been teaching for. I had to turn it down since it would be a $12,000 pay cut! Only in education you get penalized for trying to make a career change; seems other types of careers; they will pay you more or at least for your experience. We get a slap in the face for our worth..... doesn’t seem right how the system works for us....
