Hi everyone. I'm a 3rd grade first year teacher at a Catholic school. I just got my license to teach in another state to close the gap in my long distance relationship. To apply to be a public school teacher in this new state, you must first make a general online application. The problem is that this application asks for three references that are automatically emailed and notified as soon as you hit submit. The current/last principal must be one of the references. I feel really uncomfortable with notifying my current principal before I have another job in mind. We have a good relationship but I just feel it is too early to have this discussion with her. Should I just be honest? What would you do or say? Thank you.
