I had a student claim she was a new student in my class. Being a substitute, how would I know for sure. She proceeded to be super disruptive. Turns out she wasn't a new student, wasn't in the class, and was in a different grade entirely.

People who have left or are about to leave with an offer in hand: how did you get your new opportunity? Through a recruiter on LinkedIn? Personal connections/networking? Did a client hire you? I think it would be cool to gather some responses for everyone thinking of leaving!
