Just want to say a big Thank you to contributors to this forum! esp TheoGriff Compassman lanokia to name a few. I have been reading more than contributing but thanks to you I have survived a pretty horrendous two terms. thanks to Theo's advice I didn't completely muck up my letter resignation dates, and I managed to put together a succeful application and interview. I only have 2 weeks left until I leave, only 2 more weeks of feeling sick at the sight/sound of my boss, only 2 weeks of worry left. I have a temporary teaching post to give me breathing space to consider my next move in/out of teaching.
