Hi everyone, I am a preschool to grade 3 teacher who needs some advice about job applications. Last September I was hired for a family consumer science teacher at a high school. All I would need to do is take another praxis. This job required teaching an early childhood curriculum to high school students and running the preschool program. Eventually the high school students would take over the teaching of the preschoolers. I took this job out of desperation and wasn't certified. Everything went well until I taught a safety lesson on childhood sexual abuse. This lesson caused me to have flashbacks of childhood abuse that I endured leading to a hospitalization at a psychiatric hospital. Upon being discharged, I had to complete 6-8 weeks of a therapy program that would take place during school hours. The treatment team also said I needed a medical leave from my job as I was not in a condition to work. Well the school was ok with the time off needed for hospitalization but they weren't with needing 6-8 weeks off. Things dragged out and it felt like a fight between myself and the district. Eventually I was terminated. Here's the thing, I did nothing wrong, my mentor said I was doing great. I lost my job because I became ill. I was unable to work the rest of the school year because I became depressed about losing my job. When I was finally better I couldn't find anything. Now I am applying for elementary jobs for September and I am not sure if I should put the high school job on my resume. If I do, how do I explain my situation without going into too much personal detail? I think I have to put it on my applications because when I google my name, the meeting minutes when I was hired comes up. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I just want to put this year behind me and get an elementary job for September. Thanks.
