Re: When to tell my students?
Tell them before the district posts your job. You have control of the info, be proactive in telling them.
After 35 years in music education, I am retiring to pursue furthering my career in composing and arranging.
I already turned in my early retirement paperwork to my school district, as well as, sending off my paperwork to TRS. Yesterday, my district interviewed for my position and today offered it to their candidate.
I am debating when and how to tell my students. Originally, I was going to tell them in person, but now that most likely won't happen. I want to make sure they hear it from me before my co-worker introduces the new director.
Any recommendations? Should I still wait until mid to late May? Should I post a video, on Google Classroom, telling the students. My last day in officially May 29th, so I need to do this before then.
Thank you in advance.
