so I moved to another state for a teaching job in September. Though I am happy with the job for now (it's really not where I would want to stay for many years) I just really feel like I want to go back home. I miss my family and though being away has been a great experience I really don't see it as a long term thing for me. I am thinking of applying to schools back home now that jobs are starting to get posted. We also got our letters in our mailboxes for what we plan on doing next year. I don't know what to put. I don't know whether to put that I am staying or that I plan to resign. The thing is I really wouldn't move unless I did find something full time at home but to be honest I might not know till August... Here's my other dilemma. Let's say something magical happens and I get an interview and they want my references. Who do I put from school?! I wouldn't want word getting around that I was leaving since it isn't definite but I also want someone who can vouch for what I've been doing these past few months? Do I put someone down from previous jobs ? Should I tell my principal that I am thinking of applying to schools closer to home? I've only been here a few months and I feel like she doesn't even really know me. We've had minimum conversations and I still haven't even been observed. I just don't want her to get mad and take it the wrong way but at the same time I do want to seem responsible. Any advice from those who have been in similar situations?
