It's been a while since I posted, but there hasn't been much for me to say about what's going on.
I received my notice of intent to non-renew my contract about a month ago. My union director saw no reason for me not to file for my due process hearing so I did. Tomorrow, I'm meeting her to pick up my personnel file from the district office and I meet with the lawyer handling my case on Monday afternoon.
I can't say that this has been a pleasant experience. I've managed to reach a point where I'm not breaking down everyday but it's still emotionaly and spiritually draining. I've applied for 4 different jobs but haven't got so much as an interview for any of them. The funding crisis in my state has many districts running scared so positions in my fields are few and far between. The ones that are posted are not in places that are close to me or in districts with good reputations.
I'm ready to have this entire thing over and done with already but the process appears to be taking some time.
