Just a thought.....Your school district should have a medical leave of absence policy even if you've only been there four months. You should check with your Human Resources department to see about specific paperwork, if you choose to do this. I'm just thinking it would give you a chance to rest and heal from the stress without losing your job. Then, if you want to go back and transfer to another school, you would still have a contract. Just a thought if you're looking for other options. Hang in there. I've worked for crummy principals, too. It just makes it so much better when you get a good one!
