Re: Time to Give Up?
Just want to point out that I did do exactly this. I went from a charter school job to a rural job. I'm on year 6 now and still am trying to "break in" to the bigger schools that I feel I am a better fit for, all while still teaching my heart out to the kids I have in front of me.
I just want to teach HS full time. I'm over teaching beginning band. But I haven't had success in finding that yet. I consider myself a successful teacher, but I can see myself leaving the profession if I stay on this trajectory because of being stuck teaching an age range I don't like.
