At my last job, I told my principal around February that I was looking for a new job. He thanked me for letting him know, wished me well. I asked him to keep it quiet so my kids wouldn't find out. He posted my job the next week - I found out about it from a kid. The rest of that year I dealt with a lot of apathy from some kids because "you won't be here next year, who cares?" |
If you think you can keep everything running smoothly for the rest of the year, even if it's known that you're leaving, it would be nice to let your administration know so they can hire someone. Maybe they could post the job as a district-wide non-campus-specific position, so they can start gathering applications without outing you. Personally, I wouldn't. The rumor mill is strong around here.
I'll be starting a new non-teaching job this summer, pending that my interview process this weekend goes well.
How soon should I tell my boss and admin? Should I wait until the end of the school year so it doesn't turn into a lame duck situation, or let them know now so that they have plenty of time to prepare for next year?
Just looking for some advice on what you think would be best. Do you think I'd be treated differently by my superiors if they know I'm on my way out in a few months?
