How would you feel it this happened to you? Today, was like any other day, but at the end of the day things went to crap. I received news that one of my student’s siblings had tested positive for COVID. Family is keeping him home now. He took his COVID test today, and I will know in 3 days if he is positive or not. I was told to continue working till we get the results back. I am beyond worried tonight. I just wished teacher didn’t have to be in this position

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 need to vent a little so I’m sorry ahead of time. My school has been terrible at hiring new teachers the past 8 years and we have had a ton or turnover. Or people have gotten tenure who quite honestly don’t deserve it. We finally hired a competent young woman who is absolutely crushing it. She has great lessons and is engaged. She cares. She works her butt off. Today she came in crying because our admin reprimanded her for turning her camera off on zoom for ten minutes!!!! WTH are we doing?!?!

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....

Any fish with experience moving to an internal, non-consulting role with their firm and have an opinion on making the move now? Would be promotion (which I am unlikely to get in my area of the org due to freezes) but very aware of the old adage “if it’s not billable, it’s killable.” No layoffs yet and no pressure for me to move out of consulting, but this may be an option to level up and maybe have a better exit in 18 months. Thoughts?
