So, I'm sort of sitting on the fence here First, I am relatively happy at my current school. My coworkers are fantastic, most of my admin is cool, and I love what I teach. I'm teaching primarily Dual Enrollment, AP & Honors with one regular class thrown in. I sponsor the after school drama program, with a great group of enthusiastic kids, as well as the National English Honor Society. The drama kids and I have definitive plans for the next few years, provided that they all continue on, and I have an AP who seems to really want to help on that front. The pay is decent, the commute is good, and in general, no real complaints. Next year, I will only have upper level classes, at least that's the plan now. Our district is restructuring, and we are developing academies at each of our high schools. One is a performing arts academy, which is not located at my school. My school will host an academic academy--which I am slated to be in. What I don't have at my current school is drama. I miss teaching it desperataly. Before I became a teacher, I worked in professional theatre, and I still volunteer at our local community theatre. Every school I've ever taught at until now I've also taught the drama class and run the program. My current school cut the elective this year, and more than likely, it is not coming back. I am toying with the idea of transferring to the performing arts academy. It could be wonderful, but I am concerned that they are not going to put the money in that they neeed, and it will not be what they are proposing it to be--I still have a bunch of questions i need to ask the coordinator. My dilemma is this--do I give up what I have to go to the new program--hope it becomes what it is advertised to be, but risk being severely disappointed and losing what I have? Or, stay where I am, and give up that opportunity, and perhaps watch it grow, and then because I didn't get in on the ground floor, lose my chance to be only a theatre teacher (which is my dream)? Like I said, I still have a lot of questions to ask, and I will definetly ask those first, but just thinking out loud at this point. Any advice? Suggestions?
