You can consider it as a good sign. I have seen managers and above reach out with such quick around requests to only the people they trust. (Of course some are assholes who want to just dump work or need a quick turnaround due to mismanagement)

Or maybe you feel anxious because it sounds like that project sucks

Started a new role in early August, excited because the opportunity sounded like it was very close to my old job in management and culture. The truth is that it’s not, but no one seems willing to admit it. I feel like I got the rug pulled out from under me, but also feels too soon to be looking to switch again. Am I crazy for considering looking for a better fit so soon?

I know this is potentially a controversial topic but, do you believe some content areas, grade levels or positions (i.e. specialist or special Ed teacher) have an intrinsically harder job/more intense workload than others? Or, is workload more dependent on the ideals of individual teachers, not their position? In my opinion, High School Social Studies and English have the most labor/work the longest hours. But I’m curious what others think.
