my school is closing :-(


Date: Sat May 10 2003 - 04:44:46 PDT

Speaking of stress relievers~One of my schools is closing due to budget cuts.
It has been incredibly stressful and I am trying to pack up an entire art
room and also teach class at the same time. All of the students are being
sent to other schools. (i am only at this school 2 days a week so it is hard
to find the time to pack)
My principal at the other school told me yesterday that i will probably be
teaching in 2 different school next year. (talk about stress) I have been in
both schools for 10 years and built so many relationships with the students
and staff. I am heartbroken about the situation but am also grateful that I
still have a job. My school system cut 25 teachers for next year including 2
art teachers. I visited the art teacher (whose job I will be taking next
year) to see her art show yesterday afternoon and felt awful!
Anyone ever been in a similar situation?

Take care,
