Many years ago, I had stepped back to an asst. after many years of being the head. Very happy. A couple of years later the head guy was offered his "dream job" with a big salary increase after the first week of summer band and asked for the school to release him. They were willing to release him if they could find someone as good as he was. The district asked me if I thought I could do the job. My reply was that I could but wasn't all that sure I wanted to. After a few hours of talking about budget increases, salary, and all that stuff I decided to take the job. As it turned out, I made a lot more than the past band director made at his new job, got a huge increase in budget, instruments, repair, etc. |
The honeymoon was on and lasted till I retired several years later. I think this happens a lot because the district calls around to others and finds out that they have gradually gotten behind in several areas and they want to correct that.
Worked well in my case and life was good.
