I started at a new school in January - I love it even tho it is really tough. When I joined I took a pay-cut to work with someone I consider to be an inspirational head (who joined the school in September to turn it around) - and I don't regret a thing. Now I have to get a bit circumspect...I know one of the other teachers at the school really really well and respect(ed) her a lot. She currently holds the position in the school which I held in my previous school. I have been very upset by the way that she handles her role in the school, as this is not the person which I knew and I find her attitude to be very destructive. She hates the head and fights constantly with all of the SLT - to the point of screaming at each other in the corridors in front of the children. The head came to me today and offered me a promotion which basically means that I get her job and she is moved sideways. It is my dream job and I am over the moon to be given this role...but of course I feel incredibly guilty about my friends position. She will be told about this on Monday and the changes take effect after Easter. I love her dearly and feel guilty but also really really excited. No real questions just needed to put it all (sort of ish) in writing to understand how I feel.
