Am I crazy . . . At my school, I have been running my theatre program for nine years---I built it up from the bottom. I do everything with the help of students and parents. I have 14 years of theatre ed experience, plus 20 years of professional/community theatre experience. I have connections all over our area with local theatre groups that helps me brings guests, etc. into the program. I am certified to teach theatre and have a degree in theatre. I got a glowing evaluation, and have every year I've been here, with my comments always being about my dedication to the theatre program. My principals have seen my shows this year (for the first time in years) and have had nothing but good to say. And then, they decided to interview for the position, and gave it to the other candidate--who happens to be a friend of their's from their old school. Now, I don't know the reasons yet--my P will tell me today, but I can't for the life of me see any reason why. Perhaps she is more qualified, but I don't see how that's possible since she's younger than me. I am just in shock!
