Hello I have a co-teacher in the classroom with me. How do I get past the feeling of thinking I am being judged?

I am a California teacher looking to relocate. My son is pushing for Boerne. I have spent most of my life in small private Christian schools and loved it! When I moved to public school the large class sizes and trauma/sped students filling my classroom burned me out. I moved to homeschool this year (with my same district) and love it!!! I am curious about teaching in Texas. Class sizes, special ed, private school, etc. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Woke up to the dreaded “Conversation with X” meeting on my calendar this morning 😔 I know this question has been asked multiple times but can someone provide me a list of all of the things I should send to myself before being let go? Also, does anyone have any tips on how to negotiate for the maximum severance package? So much processing through my head right now and trying to remain level-headed to figure out the short term plan in the meantime. I have my call in the next 3 hours. Thank you!
