This doesn't smell good to me. I'd ask what's going on that
would make that teacher quit. I hope you get to ask some
questions to put your mind at ease. Being up front is best, and
I wonder what they're hiding. I will certainly be praying.

I hope youâre all doing well.
I know some of you are aware that I am to start a voice teaching
job at a Catholic School in the fall, but there has been some
uncertainty surrounding that. Although the principal has been
friendly and civil to me, she has also in my view, dropped some
hints that it might not work out: Either because they only have
money to pay a teacher to come one day a week, they want to gauge
the interest of students, and last year, the music teacher left
because the kids were making fun of her accent. (Well,to that, I
say shame on the school for not training the students in
diversity and respecting people of differences.)
Well, the latest is, I followed up with the principal yet again
because next Tuesday is my day to come in and observe, except for
She said that the music teacher âquit the day before school
started, so there are no music classes to observe.â I have it
Does anyone else feel suspicious about that statement? I mean,
how could a teacher quit before school even starts? Itâs just
not adding up in mind!
While that may be true, and some other opportunity may have come
along for said perspective music teacher, given the communication
weâve had, it just seems awfully convenient and that thereâs
a subtext underneath that response.
Weâre supposed to have a follow-up conversation tomorrow
afternoon, and you bet Iâm going to follow up! So my conflict
is: While I do not want to burn a bridge and cry fowl for no
reason, I donât want to let her down easy. I have asked, time
and time again,
âAre you sure you do not have any concerns as to how I, as a
blind person will be an effective teacherâ and she has not
indicated that she has other than what Iâve just said.
Or am I just knocking on a locked door at this point?
Your prayers would be appreciated as well. â¤
