I've been in the Stanwood/Camano area for over 10 years and this is my first experience with a RIF situation. We have good friends that teach in in Arlington and Marysville and their notices went out as well. It's been a long week of RIF notices and long talks with teachers that find themselves suddenly w/out a job or displaced. I don't know how the rest of you are doing around the state, but it's been a depressing week in 4th corner - the issues are weighing on my mind as I get ready to head to Spokane tomorrow.
On a slightly brighter note, I did check off 2 of my list items, now on to the other 8 :-)
