Hi all, I have been offered a part-time foreign language teacher position (25 hours bi-weekly) in November of 2012, which I accepted. I was a little relentless before going to the interview (school has a bad reputation, it is a middle school), however, I took a chance and got the position. It turned out to be extremely challenging for me, the kids were out of control, not interested in learning a second language, did not want to be in my classroom. I had 2 classes, in one I had 35 kids, and the other 20. The second was more or less manageable, the first one was close to crazy. My supervisor (the Foreign Language department chair) knew about the situation before I was even hired. He even told me at the interview that some of the kids would not stay in their seats. Now, he thinks I am still doing a great job (I come up with all kinds of projects, powerpoint presentations to get the students engaged), and he is talking about my future students for next year. He is so proud of me, that I do not see how I am going to tell him that I will not be back next year. Under no circumstances, I will return to that school. I have been frustrated and stressed beyond imagination. At one point, I almost quit (around February 2013), but chose to hang on. I have to say that I am new to teaching, and only started subbing in March of 2012. I am also a part-time substitute teaching. When I do not teach at that school, I sub at other schools. I just had my certification in K-6 elementary education and really do not want to teach at middle schools ever. I love subbing at elementary schools, specially for 2nd and 3rd graders. So, to all of you, I do I say no for next year? Wasn't my supervisor supposed to ask me about my plans for next year, instead of assuming I want to come back next year?
