While at the WEA-RA in Spokane, a young woman received her RIF notice as she was checking into her hotel. A superintendent came by to deliver it personally.
Also, another teacher received her RIF notice just a few days after finishing her National Boards.
I don’t even know what to say. I know I’m fortunate enough to have some years under my belt, and it’s so hard to watch these young, enthusiastic teachers lose their jobs and maybe their passions. Will we get them back?
