Today I was told that I will not have a position at my school next year. I'm being put on a "must-hire" list which means that other schools would have to hire me before they could interview any applicants that aren't already employed by my school system. Still, most schools regard the must-hire list as the crappy teachers that no other school wants, not the awesome ones (with test scores to prove it) who just have low seniority.
I knew this was going to happen since I'm one of the newest teachers at the school, but it still sucks. Maybe the boy will get a new job elsewhere and then I'll just have to worry about finding a job in a whole new school system! One without a stupid union that enables crappy teachers to retain their jobs long after their prime.
