  • I’m an assistant teacher at a private elementary school. I have a B.A. in English and no teaching credential. I worked as a tutor and at an after school program before. Basically I have no work experience outside of education. Last week contracts for the 2016-17 school year were sent out and I did not get one. My principal spoke to me about it. She said that I was doing a great job and was one of the most efficient people she’s ever met. However, she said that I did not seem happy at work. She said that other people have a hard time getting to know me. I’ve basically lost all will to work since then. My head teacher thinks my contract will be renewed and she always speaks highly of me. She even said today that “Next year you can work on designing the social studies curriculum.” She knows that I did not get my contract in the mail (she asked) and she’s probably talked to the principal about it. I’m upset because I feel like I’ve worked so hard for the past 6 months, yet it’s likely that I will be fired just for not being social. Perhaps education is the wrong field for me. I think if I just quit now then I can still get a positive reference/recommendation from my employer. However, I have no other skills. I still have 6 months (my paychecks are spread out over 12 months but there’s only 3 more months of school) so it’s possible that I can re-train myself during that time. Any ideas of what I can do?

  • Hello all! I am very excited to have joined liberty.me. I have only been a “libertarian” for about 2 years. I was wondering if any of you had suggestions on which books or ideas to explore first? I’m fairly certain I’m more of the minarchist persuasion but am eager to learn more about all the different flavors of liberty. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
