I'm so sorry that happened. I had a job in a private school once... I got hired there in November. The following school year in the beginning of Nov. I was told the school was going to close because of low enrollment. I thought it would be impossible to find a job mid year and I'd probably have to sub the rest of the school year... but ya know what? I got a job THREE WEEKS LATER... a teacher retired mid year. This will be my 10th year there now. there's hope, don't give up, even after the year starts. There are also often maternity leave possitions.
