Note to cctjt: the problem with the old boss is that she is the owner of a school, and I was a teacher. School starts in one month, and she can't find a teacher to replace me, so she is pretty upset. I had not yet signed a new contract with her, so, technically, I didn't have to give her notice anyway. Montessori elementary teacher are difficult to find. I probably should have not written her that e-mail because I just burned a bridge, but it made me feel better to finally get some things off my chest that I had wanted to tell her for a long time. And it felt GOOD!
