I have been teaching for 8 years. Fabuluous evaluations; no problems whatsoever. But this year it all fell apart. I have been written up four times this year. The first write up was for dozing in class. I have a son that was seriously wounded in Iraq and has had to endure many surgeries. We have no family here and I was his sole caretaker. Nights are really bad with him and I spent quite a few nights up all night long. Well, I dozed off in my co-teaching class. I know it was inexcusable. The second write up was for leaving a professional learning class early due to illness. The third write up was for being sarcastic to a student. The fourth write up was for alledgedly trying to access inappropriate websites. I did not try to access anything inappropriate! I teach in a county (butts) and I was trying to get county information for a project that my students were doing. As a result everything came up as being porn. I called for an investigation but I was still given a reprimand. Knowing that it was my time to leave I gave my resignation and finished the school year. I got a satisfactory annual review signed by the principal. However, I can't find a job. I have been on interviews and have been upfront about the write ups. On the applications I give my principal as a reference and he has sent his recommendation to the school systems and I always include what has occurred so I know he is not giving me a good recommendation. I get calls for interviews from these same systems, but no job offers. I am perplexed. I'm not trying to hide anything, but why call me for an interview? The interviews have been great with several saying they are very interested but I never receive a call back. I just had an interview last week and again no call back. I called yesterday and left a message but again no call. Will I ever be able to teach again???
