It Was Not a Good Match

Why I Was Fired

I was told it was not a good match.

What Being Fired Has Been Like

I felt relief at first. Then it was very discouraging due to difficulties getting back to another teaching job. The yes on "Have you been dismissed and asked to resigned from your job?" hardly gets me any interviews.

Very anxious and sad, I tried to apply for jobs further away from my home. No chance.

  • Be on time for all the paperwork
  • Don't be honest
  • Don't argue for what is right
