This is my second year teaching, I am teaching elementary at the moment. I'm REALLY burnt out and want to take some time off. I was planning on leaving elementary anyway after 2 years and getting a cset for a middle school/HS single subject also living abroad. Problem is I don't know If i can collect any unemployment if I quit. I never received a formal contract, but I was "elected for re-election." Basically my principal gave the district the thumbs up that im good for next year. I recently received a letter asking me to state if I wish to return, basically check a box. Are there tricks to getting some form of unemployment or anything if i take 6+ months off? Summer is drawing near and I have no real safety net besides some money I saved.
