Hello everyone

Well this week took the cake as far as I am concerned...This past week I
knew that contracts were going to be signed with our Director..Well
Little did I know but our schedules changed as well due to budget
restraints.

I was told the night before signing the contract by my coordinator that
I would be teaching grade three!!!!...I was teaching K-12 Art but next
year the grades 7-12 is being farmed out to other teachers who don't
have a background in Fine Arts..I did tell the coordinator that i
should have been told earlier like maybe in February...

To top it all off, I asked for an extension on signing my contract and
was told that If I didn't sign , then I don't have a contract!!!( this
was for everyone)

Needless to say i cried before I signed the contract and after I signed
the contract..I also realize that finding a job right now could be slim
so i may have to teach grade three. I've tried to make it positive for
myself and other staff members have been supportive , yet I'm not sure
if I would like grade three.

Meanwhile I've been checking job listings and there isn't too much out
there..

Has anyone had an experience like this?
