    Hi Guys,
    I am so excited I can't hardly stand it!! If you guys remember my previous posts I was released without cause in March. I had to finish the year and then look for a job. I was in despair, I had gone on several interviews and had applied for unemployment. I was really getting depressed when I found out that California has too many special ed teachers (arrggghhh)as unbelievable as that sounds:wub:!!
    Well, I got a great job!! In a high school that has the highest academic performance in the county,I will be teaching RSP with a math focus next year in my own classroom. This is soooo cool, I want to thank every one of you that heled me through this really dark time. I am so excited, the last job I had I to share my room with a veteran teacher who was threatened by me and she was extremely toxic for me as a teacher.
    AND, here's the best part......along with this great job, is a $16,000.00 raise!!!! WOW!! When God answers prayers, he gives us his best.

    Now I need to come up with some curriculum!!
    Thanks again!!
    Debbie M :love:

    Congrats Debbie...God always has something great waiting for us! I too was discouraged and thought I wouldn't get a teaching job this coming fall, but God heard my prayers and now I'll be teaching at the school and grade level I wanted. So for that Im extremely grateful!!

    RSP

    RSP is Resouce Specialist Program, these students all have IEP's. They qualify by testing or have 504 plans, which means they are on medication of some sort. In RSP they can have extra help with assignments and extra time too depending upon their disability. These are the students who learn alittle bit slower than others.
    Hope this helps.

    Congratulations! I'm happy you found a job! Question for you: how did you explain the nonreelection on the applications and interviews or did it even come up? I'm glad it worked out for you! Congrats again!

    The part on the application where it says were you ever dismissed or asked to resign form your job, I answered no because I was not dismissed or asked to resign. When the question came up about why I left my last position I told them my contract was not renewed and they seemed fine with it. I told them all of my evaluations were superior and there was no reason given to me as to the non-re-election.
    I didn't volunteer any information but I was also very careful about them thinking I might be dishonest, I told the truth.
