Re: Having a hard time
A colleague of mine spent his entire career in one school and was miserable towards the end. I told him to take another job in the area but he stuck it out until retirement. I'm sure there were other factors that made him stay. His wife taught at the same school and his son was also at that campus. I taught at 11 different school districts in my career and didn't settle down until my last job. I stayed there 18 years and considered it my home. I didn't stay for the pay, good budget, or administrative support. I stayed for the kids and community. You can find a job like that. Good Luck!
