    Well, my school wanted to know who was staying and who was leaving. I said I was leaving (I recently put out my feelers).

    Some family stuff is making this position less than ideal compared to other possibilities, I think part-time might be the way to go, and while my school is awesome in so many ways it has been my hardest year by far and I don't see that pattern changing.

    Admin is giving me a letter of rec and all that, so here we go! Wish me luck. Perhaps I'll look back into districts.

    Still the same. I would like to move to upper elementary like I have always wanted (I have a nice sturdy phonics/reading background, which might come in handy) and part-time would be ideal. Husband and I are in a position where there is no particular rush, and a local district is famous/infamous for having part-time positions.

    Yes and yes. I already had a few calls for interviews.

    Kudos to you for having the courage to make a change to something that will be better for you. I think that too many people stay in less-than-ideal positions because they are afraid to take that leap of faith. I hope that you are able to find that just-right fit.

    I do hope that a good part-time position comes your way. Part-time employment is a sane alternative to the almost unbelievable demands made on teachers. I hope it works out.
