    I just found out this week that my position will be reduced to 1/2 time next year. Bummer. I really want to stay as there are no openings around and there will most likely be a full-time option next year, but it's frustrating.

    They want us to up our reading scores and what do they do? CUT ENGLISH POSITIONS. I've been through so much with this school over the past 3 years, I just don't think it's my time to leave. I guess I'll be looking for a part time job. :confused:

    What would you guys do? Stay or go?

    If you can make this statement even though you are facing a salary cut of half, I think you have given yourself the answer. Good luck with the part time job look. Perhaps the local library?

    Thanks. I'm working on getting a part time job, but I don't know what my hours will be yet. It's been a trying month. What does an ulcer feel like? Because I think I have one now :(
