This sounds dumb. I need to find a job as a classroom teacher. But I am scared. My last school was horrible and I don't want to ever find myself in that situation.

Maybe try working as a substitute teacher for a while. It will give you the opportunity to get into multiple classrooms in many districts, get yourself back into a classroom and feeling good. That way you can also have a better idea of what districts feel right for you. Then when you go to apply for jobs, think about where you felt good while you were subbing and keep those to the top of your list when you’re looking for a job.

good advice! I've switched districts 3 times and got pretty darn lucky, but every school is a different ball game.

That doesn’t sound dumb at all. I think every day how lucky I am to have the school, team, district, administration, and support from all of the aforementioned that I do. I feel like I should make a life change soon, which may include leaving my current town and therefore school, and I’m afraid to find myself in a bad situation as well!
