And the Plot Thickens...

So this doesn't directly affect me but I feel the need to share anyway. I have been telling the parents of the children in my class that the previous teacher that I took over for would be coming back after I leave because that was my understanding. I'd asked my boss a week or a few weeks ago when she would be coming back and she'd just told me she hadn't spoken to her yet and she didn't know. From what I know, it is a regular thing every year for this teacher to leave during the summer and take care of her own children, then return to her job. This year, her kids are older now, I'm not sure exactly how old but they're older. She has some sort of art degree and has decided now to pursue a career doing something with art instead of coming back. I kind of feel like I've been lying to the parents even though I didn't know. I can't help but wonder if I would be keeping the position of lead teacher if I was staying in this city instead of going to graduate school. Hmm..


  1. I think given the change of events, you would have definitely transitioned into the permanent lead teacher!

    1. Thank you! I'd like to think so. One of my other bosses didn't know I already had another job in a new city and asked if I wanted to still pick up hours there so I think they still like me lol
