    I quit my job on Tuesday. Couldn't take it anymore. The disregard for the law, the disregard for staff, the disregard for safety.

    I will miss the students, but I couldn't work in that toxic environment anymore. Plus the 1 1/2 hour commute was killing me.

    I had a job interview on Friday for a local Christian school 5 minutes from my house. They offered me the job. I am thrilled to be going back to what I love. Teaching and practicing my faith at work!

    I took a huge cut in pay, but I have no traveling costs because I can walk to work!

    Thanks to those that listened to my complaining. I hope to now return to a healthy teaching environment!

    :thanks::)

    That's amazing! I bet you love the new job. Hopefully your leaving also influenced the admin in your previous building to think about how they're treating the staff- you may have helped the other teachers that are still there too!
