After 2 years asking for a change in my position, today I was told once again that my request would not be honored. I know the best answer is to apply elsewhere. Knowing that it is late in the hiring process and many districts around me have initiated hiring freezes, please give me the best advice on how to look forward to next year:

Well then pack up and go. Its going to be hard to leave what you are used to, but if you are not happy then don't stay in that situation. It will get worse and worse and your mental health will continually get worse. I watched my dad go through it when he was in education.

I would write a formal email to your principal informing him of how you feel about the situation and let him know your intent regarding a new position the following year. Either they will respect your request or they will not. I had to straight up tell my principal I would leave if I wasn't given the opportunity to teach something different. He respected me enough to let me change positions. Send the email and be honest. See what the results are and go from there

I have had a meeting with her about it. She is aware of my feelings.

I’m sorry this is happening to you. Please allow me a moment to play Devil’s Advocate. Is there a valid reason why the district needs to keep you where you are? Does keeping you where you are benefit a large number of students? Are you a vital part of a department or grade level? Is it easier to fill the other position than it would be to fill yours? *None of these should automatically negate your request. However, perhaps there is a valid, logical reason. Maybe it’s not just a blatant disregard of your wishes. Again, sorry.

Is there someone to replace you? Have you considered “duplicating” yourself through mentorship? Investing in another, so that they can take these responsibilities. As an administrator, it would be easier to let you go knowing there would be [blank] to shoulder your duties. Perhaps request to begin transitioning away from these roles...mentor others into these roles.

Yes. I made the mistake of not taking an offer for my dream job at a different school district during a time when even two decade veterans were in a mass exodus from my school. It is hard and foreign to us I think because it kicks in our parental drive when we think of meeting the kids’ needs and less of our own but I have learned that I have to think or myself first. Best to you ❤️

They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
