The school has a reputation for really throwing teachers out and not caring at all. I watched it happen to many others. Its a big school with lots of money, every year they hire a bunch of new teachers and than let them go. Usually just saying they were not a good fit. I was new to high school, coming from elementary and new to being a RSP teacher with a caseload of twenty students. Some of my seniors I had to track down to meet with them. One student who normally had very good grades, really dropped the ball and let her grades slip. I tried so hard to help her, but she ended up lying to me about finishing a required paper. The teacher gave her an F, and she was not able to graduate on time. Obviously the P, felt that it was directly my fault and I was to blame. I watched people let go this year who were very vocal and angry about not being asked to return as they were ready to be tenured, but let go. I was a complete professional and left as a professional with respect to all. I thought the P would give me a reference but now I know that is not true. I have spent a lot of time soul searching and I have come to realize it comes down to forgiveness, that is it. Forgive and move on, there is nothing good to come from bitterness or blame. As silly as the situation is I believe its a blessing somehow. Personally I would like to just move on and be ready to honestly explain the situation of not being a good fit for a newer SPED teacher and that I learned an important lesson. With all of my being I am going to use this to grow as a person, not let it ruin me. I was told about this for a reason, and that is the focal point. Not letting this run a negative course, anyways again the insight I read is life changing thank you all.
