I'm applying for a new position in my state after resigning, and I'm asking around for references from my principals and assistant principals in the three schools I teach in, as well as my program coordinator. My P and AP from one of my 3 schools, as well as my program coordinator, were not comfortable in serving as references for me. They are denying my request because I didn't show enough growth as a first-year teacher, which led to a non-renewal. Now I'm starting to lose confidence. What if the admin at my other two schools refuse too? Would I be completely out of luck? Pretty much everywhere I'm applying for requires a reference from a current supervisor. The only reference I have right now is my student teaching supervisor from college where I graduated from last year. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.
