My job is very up in the air right now due to teacher cuts, budget and what have you. We have a new principal coming in for next year, who has started taking over the school already. A teacher in my department is retiring, and I e-mailed new principal about the job, basically saying I am on a temporary contract, and was wondering if he could give me any information about how her job is going to be filled, I'd like to stay at the school, etc etc. I addressed it to Mr. Castro. His name is not Castro. It is a very similar name, starts with a C. He responds, "are you writing to the right person...im not mr. castro," and that's all he wrote. I don't know the man. He doesn't know me. I don't know to read this as he was offended and thus refused to answer the questions I had written in my e-mail or what. I sent him an apology, but I'm definitely sweating this. Thoughts on how deep of a hole I may have just dug for myself?
