    9 schools in 8 years

    1 - LTS position, 1 semester
    2 - Subsitute/after school position, 1 semester
    3-4 - 2 schools abroad in 2 different countries for one year each
    5 - first FT position, 1 year temporary
    6 - 7, Substitute at 2 schools in same school system
    8 - PT position, 1 year
    9 - current FT position - just signed for my 3rd year:)

    I only counted schools I have taught at, but have also worked in/at several others in different roles. It feels good to stay in one place finally!

    I've taught for 2 years and 4 months and next year I'll start at my 3rd school!

    I taught at my first school for 2 years right out of college, then my husband (military) was stationed in a different state. I stayed home with my babies for almost 4 years before we moved back to our home state and accepted a mid-year position at a new school. It's been a great fit, but due to budget cuts, the four most recent hires are being involuntarily transferred (surplused). I was offered a position at my neighborhood school for next year and hope to stay for several years!

    LOVE this thread....


    Only 1 Private Day School for 6 years as a PreK Teacher and 1 Public K-5 School for 8 years as a Director of an ECE Program and now I am a full time resource ParaEducator for my 2nd year at another public school, same district.

    Hope to transfer back to my neighborhood school that I spent 8 years in this coming school year...i requested a transfer so I can work with a former colleague (specialist/teacher) of mine who is now the new Principal there :D

    This has escalated quickly! Make that 4 schools in 7 years :eek:

    NC school- 6 years
    MI Charter- 2 months, resigned
    MI LTS position- 3 months
    MI public school- now contracted, in my 3rd month

    And, sadly, I'm still looking for my 'forever' home. Hopefully I can find that this summer!

    2 schools in 2 years. I started at a mid year replacement at my first school. It was 3 hours from home so I knew that I would want to find a job back near family.

    Interesting to see this thread come up again - I was the OP and didn't remember I had started this! I'm about to start at my 2nd school going into my 3rd year of teaching. :) I'm hoping it can be a "forever home" as giraffe said. I am looking to settle down and be part of a community.

    I am at my 3rd school, in my 4th year of education. It feels like a lot of moving around to me, but sounds like it's nothing out of the ordinary based on others' experiences.
