I have see a few threads where teachers have not been asked back for next year and was wondering how common it is? What are some of the reasons you may be given for not being asked back? What are some things you can do to improve your chances of being asked back? Can you survive not being asked back from one school district to find work in another? The reason that I am interested is that this is the first year that I have seen or heard of several teachers not being asked back. The one time I actually knew someone who was not asked back, it was obvious that the teacher wasn't cutting it, so I just assumed that if you did a really great job, it wasn't something to worry about. Now, I am beginning to think differently. I did a search, but only threads that posters mentioned not being asked back came up.
