Moon Mission Cut Short

Well…it looks like my 6th grade Social Studies Moon Mission (see my previous post) will be cut short. A couple of weeks ago, the principal came to me and said that although she’d like to rehire me, the school district (BISD) would probably not allow it. The district must cut quite a few positions and everyone who is on a “limited term” contract (those of us who were hired mid-year) will lose their position in August. Without taking into account our teaching ability or our teaching team interactions, we will simply be replaced by other teachers who have been with the district longer.

I’m extremely disappointed. I don’t like the situation at all. I love my job, my coworkers, and my students. I feel like I really “fit” here that I’ve been able to make some great positive contributions during my short time at Rasco. I still hope BISD will be able to find a way to fund all the positions, but will also be watching other job openings carefully. Miranda and I have gone through this before, and we have learned to trust God. Ultimately, He is the only provider that we can truly count on and He has never let us down.

Please say a prayer for us as we board this roller coaster of uncertainty once again. . . Wait. . . There is no uncertainty in His hands, just an unknown path.

  1. sorry to hear about this, Steve. Just doesn’t make sense to me and I just can’t get it through my thick head why our young people and those needed to educate them aren’t one of the highest priorities we have!! Cut backs in those areas just blow my mind!! I’ll be praying for you.

  2. This is happening across the entire state. Please let your state senators and representatives know how displeased you are.

  3. Not just Texas. I’ve talked to people from all over US and it’s happening there too. Our kids priorities should always be our priority.

  8. Oh, this makes me angry. The whole system which protects the incompetent teachers and locks out the new teachers that have a little fire and want to serve the students. May the Lord bless you and keep you!

  12. So sorry, Steve. Working hard and doing a good job don’t seem to be important in the mix anymore. Praying for you.
