Because that was a good idea?

I didn't always agree with the leadership of my previous school, thus prompting me to make a change.  I was by no means the only one who felt the decisions that were made were in the best interests of the teachers or students.

One staff member who has been at my previous school for decades just recently announced her school change.  This came as a shock to everyone.  She gave the polite "I'm moving to a 9 month school that's a few minutes from my house" response.  Pretty much everyone gave that politically correct response because it's hard to argue with wanting a shorter commute.

She gave me the real scoop.

The prep schedule for next year is...atrocious.  For one track, she would have been looking at three classes at once.  It's bad enough the specialists sometimes have double classes, but three? That's close to ninety kids.  That's in no way acceptable and I don't blame her for not wanting to be a part of that mess.

That choice is in no way best for students nor teachers.
