What a way to start my weekend! Seven years of hard work and dedication= Pink slip??? Yes...my principal said that it has nothing to do with my performance (which I already knew) and that it was solely based on my seniority date. I spoke with my Asst. Superintendent today and she said the district will do everything in their power to bring me back and that "we just can't lose you!" Despite the fact that people have tried to cheer me up and let me know how valuable I am, it doesn't change the fact that I received a letter stating: "Your services will not be needed during the 2012-2013 school year" (I stopped reading the rest of the letter after I read that line). I just hope they don't wait to hire me back until right before school starts (that is--if they DO bring me back). UGH!!!!!!!!!
