Hello;

I need some advice and no spam or negative comments. I have made a terrible mistake with the school where I am working. I would like to continue to look for another job while teaching, but am unsure at how teacher contracts work and weather another school would even look at my application knowing that I am under contract with another district.

Thank you, Ctracy

  • M Must be a rich district. Not only do you have a copy ROOM you have a person who is assigned to RUN it. Most other places have broken down copiers sitting in hallways and teachers who are getting laid off. Fancy. Must be hard. On 8/11/10, Terry...See More
