add me to our list. I have been feeling so bad. I would log on to this web site but couldn't bring myself to open up. Thank you to everyone who could share their frustration,anxiety and sadness.-Reading what everyone else is dealing with has helped me to realize that I am not worthless nor in the wrong profession. I just wasn't in the right school. I thought I was a good fit-the chairwoman of my dept. was really disappointed when I told her I was not being reappointed and so were the other teachers that I had become very friendly with. And, I know that I did my job well because I got my students FCAT scores and 85% of them went up one or two levels. (One of the AP's called me to tell me how impressed he was with my scores.) Unfortunately, my AP seemed to have a bee in her bonnet against me.She was so unfair and unprofessional. Needless to say I was not offered my position for the 2009 school year. I know that, in the long run, it is better for me to find another teaching position and that I should be glad to be out of that school-there were so many problems with the administrators. Regardless of all that-I loved teaching those kids. Anyway, thank you for all of your posts, I feel so much better knowing that it is the system and its administrators that is keeping us from doing the jobs we were born to do. I'm sure that in spite of the economy and budget cuts and unwritten rules we will attain our goals. Thanks again, I really mean it.
