Background: I've been a daily sub for about a year and I recently took a long term sub position (yay!) as a reading support teacher in a city district until June....there is talk of keeping me on but I am not the happiest camper and would like to keep my options open- especially if that talk about the contract is only talk. I had been subbing in a different district daily and had been frequently requested. I was able to tell one principal in that district but was not able to tell the principal of the school I really frequented...(hopefully this makes sense, sorry). I had to cancel upcoming positions with them because I obviously can't go...and I would like to let the principal know why I just disappeared (who knows if they noticed...but i hope they did gosh darn it!). So, do I write a little card to the principal? (The district doesn't list email on their site or I would do that.) If I write the card, what do I say? I mean, I know they have a summer program that I would LOVE the opportunity to teach in- and they were aware of that- but they are updating the applications...I just don't know how to write to her... "Dear so and so, I wanted to apologize for cancelling my future substitute positions in your school. I was recently hired as a LTS in ____ district as a reading support teacher and couldn't resist the opportunity. ..." I want to say something like "I miss _____ Elementary and do hope to be a part of district in the future." I also think it would be good to mention the summer program....I just don't know how! Ugh, also, the secretary is the one who requested me all the time; she really took a liking to me...do I write a card to her too??? Any advice is greatly appreciated... and I thank you if you stuck it out and read this whole message because I'm tired :| and when I'm tired I babble.
