Hey zip

Chill , I am a veteran who is sick of the BS that my district dishes out. I was asking for a release from the 90 day requirement but NOOOO. By the way try teaching in Newark NJ.

The young teachers have no STAYING POWER!

We have them quit faster than ice cream melting in the summer heat!

Actually, I would. He seems mature enough to be annoyed with his management and not take it out on his customers. Plus, he's a very experienced teacher who knows what he's doing and where he's going. And he wouldn't be their only teacher. Heck, they'll probably make him Teacher of the Year--just to keep him around longer!

Astro

It is kinda funny BUT since I have moved my wife to her homestate, gotten out of the 240,000 mortgage and into one heck of a nice new house with a 50K mortgage Iam looking forward to heading back up to NJ and teaching this year.

My wife is now near her sister and parents and brothers and niece and nehfew back in NC. Me I am looking forward to spending time working up near NYC and heck enjoying some big bucks and travel.

The wife will make some trips with me and visit our grown kids in NYC and Boston. Things are well NICE.

I stay a year I get an additional 300 per month on the pension I stay 2 years it will be closer to 700 more a month. I might just get a share apartment up near work for a year.

Re: Part-time Employment

I would never refer to Mrs. Zipper as "the wife".

Astro, anyone in the profession who would want to manipulate sick days and hang on for extra benefit pension$'s does NOT have the student's welfare in mind. He IS looking after #1.

I would NOT want my grandkids in his class.

Re: Part-time Employment

What are you doing Zip, auditioning for the part left vacant by Max's departure?

Keep it up, you are dong pretty well. With luck and perserverance, perhaps you can soon join him in Canadian Valhalla.

Ha

Not really Ha!

I'm just not buying the NJ sob stories.

The guy needs to realize he's had a career and it's time to move on.

Zipper i will agree with you however they would not let me out of an expired contract for 90 days from sept 1st.

What would you do?

the job that I was offered is now not mine they cannot keep it over 90 days.

Looking out for number 1 you bet.

Re: Part-time Employment

No to pile on, Zip, but...teachers are people too! They have personal, health, family, and financial issues--and their final year on the job--just like everybody else. I bet plenty of your and your children's and grandchildren's teachers were dealing with harder issues than newguy. My son the middle school teacher spent most of last year in horrendous union negotiations. And next year he'll be a part-time grad student. And for the first two months of his 2nd year, he commuted 10 miles by bicycle in all weathers. Your grandkids would be lucky to have such a knowledgeable, compassionate, and humorous science teacher .

Re: Part-time Employment

My apologies newguy. My personal attack on you was totally unwarranted.

After reading my posts without the beergoggles I can clearly see I was out of line.
