Laid Off Notices :(
Today my dear teacher friends -at least six that I know of - got laid-off notices. Bummer. It was our last day of school before spring vacation -- three weeks of rest. But now I don't know how much rest it will be for them. Yes we were warned, but darn it! They went back 5 years! Who's going to teach these little ones? How are we suppose to keep our scores up with such low morale? The U.S. ranks low in academic achievement and here we are laying off our best teachers across the country for what? I don't get it. The district really needs to rethink what they are doing. They are going to lose a lot of good people.
