Teacher transfers

Teacher transfers:

"The budget situation in the past few years has lead to a number of teacher layoffs and reassignments.  In many cases, beginning teachers bear the brunt of these. But often overlooked are the effects of these changes on the teachers who remain (and their students), as teaching positions are shuffled around to cover the furloughed positions.

I recently talked with MH, a middle school general science teacher for 25 years. Two years ago, the district instituted a hiring freeze and began furloughing and reassigning teachers. When a high school biology teacher retired, MH (who is certified in biology) was transferred to the position. She  shared her experiences and offers advice for teachers and administrators in this situation."
