    I am so frustrated! I accepted a job on Monday (the only interview I've had...for that matter, the only CALL I've had) and I just got a call informing me that the school's enrollment is down and the position is no longer available!

    To add insult to injury, most of the positions that were available last week have now been filled and there are only 4 I can apply for now.

    I'm starting to think this is hopeless.:(

    it's not... plenty of schools are going to find that their enrollment is up and they will need teachers. Besides, the kids that were going to that school had to go somewhere, don't think the Bermuda triangle moved to OK!:unsure:

    That totally stinks, Edelweiss. I can't believe they can do that to someone! Totally not fair...

    I'm so sorry that happened to you! It unfortunately does happen. I have had it happen to me. Did you ask the P to put in a good word for you at any other positions they may know about?

    Wait, were we going to teach at the same school? This happened to me Monday. I was hired but they were not sure what grade I was going to be teaching. Instead the school CLOSED! Enrollment was so low that it closed.

    It was a private school. They had been lying to me for the past 3 weeks.

    I am sorry to hear this. I wouldn't lose hope yet. The closer to school starting, they might find that their enrollment is up and they may call you in again.

    That's awful; I'm sorry that this happened to both of you. Hopefully enrollment goes up or goes up at another school where you can get a job.

    I am sorry that this happened to you. Don't lose hope yet. Most schools aren't going to hire until they know their enrollment for sure!! We are holding off hiring for a K teacher until we know the bodies are going to show up! That means a K teacher won't be hired until around Labor day and school starts the Tuesday after Labor day!

    Stay positive and don't give up. I got hired last year as a 1st year teacher 2 weeks before school started...there were positons opening up and hiring up until Dec. So, stay optimistic:)

    Good Luck Sasha!

    I'm so sorry to hear about this! Keep your heads up, something will work out...I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. ;) I've heard of people getting hired well into the school year after other teachers ended up leaving!

    There's still hope for all of us for this school year!!! :2up:

    I got hired in November-wish I had known it was an interim position-I would have taken it anyway but I wouldn't have been so shocked when I wasn't re-appointed:(
