I have a situation.. Due to the lovely budget cuts my school is deciding on 4 positions to cut. If one goes, this teacher can also teach history-being tenured they would move over to my department. There are 3 of us that are non-tenured-one is at 4 years (at the end of this year will be tenured); me-at my second year; the other-started at my school was there until 2002 (around 4 years) left and went to another school-diff. district/same state for a couple yrs..left the education field and is now back with us for the first year. I was told that the cut teacher would take my position. I asked, but isn't this other person below me? The response..well they can teach AP and does Academic Team. (AP only requires going in June for a week to a conference/seminar and Ac. Team does necessarily take a rocket science). I've had other teachers say they'd 'go to bat for me'. I'm always at work-only missed about 2 hours because I was sick, I left 2 periods before school ended. The other is out..alot..only a few times for the coaching requirements. Some said I should 'sell' myself and abilities to the P. Now, if this one teacher isn't cut-I'm good to go. But...what do ya'll think?
