Laid off for the 3rd year in a row. What am I doing wrong? I always get great observation reviews, work extra duties (coaching, games, dances) and kids and staff like me. This is the 3rd year in a row I have been not re-elected for another year at my school. Why am I not being retained? I teach PE which is a GE for 9th and 10th grace so you would think they would actually keep a good one who does more than free play and running laps. My admin is going to give me good reference at least. Help.

Sometimes it’s not you. Check the district enrollment. If it’s in decline, they will first cut the probation teachers at the end of the year the enrollment projections aren’t in favor of re-hire. It’s not fair, but it’s easy for the site and district admin so that’s why they tend to precede this course of action.


Sometimes a PE position is needed for a head coaching position. I was a PE teacher for 15 years before I made the principal angry because I was willing to stand up to her and was then transferred 🤨! PE positions are a tough find, keep trying, and remember, keep the office manager and custodian on good terms, you would be amazed at how much their opinions matter to a Principal 😉😁!


I had the same issue, great reviews but laid off for decreased enrollment. I teach social sciences. That was almost 7 years ago. I've been subbing ever since. Working on a master's in public history hoping to get into a museum or archives.


I am so sorry!! I know what that feels like, but don’t give up!

Are you all work & no play? Build connections at the site, join a committee or something, and get to know people. They may simply not feel like they know you and that makes it easier for them to let you go.

Did you say "PE"? Our district recently just laid off quite a few permanent/tenured Physical Ed teachers, due to decreasing enrollment....I've heard some PE teachers with 10+ years with the District were being let go.... :( Perhaps you should consider getting a secondary credential in another subject (like health?), just to make yourself more "marketable".

I've been asked to post this in the UK comp bowl.

Our household TC is £225k excluding bonuses (mostly my income). Somehow we manage to save £6k a month after paying our mortgage & bills and then a further £2k into corporate pension schemes. We invest our savings but the feeling of putting away £8k each month feels great. I thought when I'd get to this stage I'd have more desires to spend the money but there is nothing I can honestly think of right now that I'd love to buy. I didn't spend a....
