Here's what's been going on with my life since late Jan. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/639858/miscarriage-or-not Synopsis: Husband died a year ago, began dating, got pregnant--miserable during pregnancy, very sick, had a miscarriage. Job threatened to fire me. Well, Tues April 10th, I tried talking to my building principal about what was going on. She wasn't exactly supportive (wanted to know if I could get on any anti-depressants that could "work faster") but did encourage me to seek counseling. So, before I could even seek counseling, she called me BACK to her office a few days later to tell me my performance hasn't improved (well duh, I had a miscarriage and I've been depressed) and I could either resign nicely or they would fire me. I was so upset that I left the office crying. This was last Tues, I had to make my decision by the following Fri (a few days ago) Well, at least my union rep who was present managed to keep a cool head. He contacted our district union rep and let him know what was going on. Apparently, the district guy wasn't happy, marched into the principal's office told me she was offering a "devil's deal" and made her call me to give me another week to decide. When I related my story to him, he said that because I didn't have tenure, there wasn't a whole lot he could do, but he is going to try and make sure that my health insurance lasts for the whole summer instead of until June 30th. He is also going after the principal for misconduct on several counts (gave me only a few hours notice for the "meeting", only a few days to make a decision, the anti depressant comment, the fact that she never let me give counseling a chance, the whole not being sympathetic to the fact that I've lost a husband and a child and that my evals last year were good) So what the heck should I put in my letter of resignation that won't make me sound snarky, bitter, sarcastic or whiny?
