the economy...let me show you it

my boss told me today that my position will most likely be cut this may. 

tomorrow the head of human resources will come by with a letter to tell me that.

i will be offered another job teaching language arts at the high school.  it's like my worst nightmare coming true. 

i run a profitable online program serving more than 20 kids.  20 kids who would otherwise be dropouts.  20 kids who chose to do online schoolwork because they could not, for whatever reason, and believe you me there are myriad reasons, they could not manage school in a traditional setting.  every single one of my students is fragile and will now mostly likely become dropouts because their rugs are being pulled out from under them.  

fuck. 

fuckity fuck fuck.

They're shutting down the *profitable* online program? This doesn't make sense to me. And it's obviously heart-breaking for you & your kids. *hugs*

that's awful news. i'm so sorry.

language arts was always fun for me as a student, but i can't begin to fathom it from the perspective of a high school teacher.

*hugs*

I'm sorry, J. Big, massive hugs. I'm sorry for you, obviously, but I'm also sorry for those 20 kids, and it's sad that the economy has gotten so bad that your job - that is clearly helping 20 people who would otherwise be without - has to be cut.

I'm sorry. That really, really sucks.
