Is there something I should know?
So our band teacher told me just a couple of days ago that he is leaving to take a job up north. In the time I have been at this school, I have seen 4 band directors leave, and even taught band one of those years. Am I missing something? I just wonder sometimes if I am doing something wrong, or if I am doing something right.
I am to the point right now, where I can't leave for another 15 years or so. If I do, I may lose my retirement, and I make enough that to go anywhere else would mean a pay cut. I love what I do, even though there are plenty of headaches. I don't really want to go, either, but can't help but ask why I seem to be sitting still while everyone around me jumps the fence to get to greener (or at least perceptively greener) grass.
Of course, by the time I get around to the point where I feel it is time to move on, I'll probably be at retirement age! Oh well, keep on keeping on!
