This question is about my wife, and we listened to the Resigning podcasts.
She's a teacher at a private school where morale is low and the people work extremely hard. She's also had medical issues that are aggravated in her job. Her director gets on her case a lot, and it relates to her disabilities. She found a new job. She's required to give 30 day notice. I made her wait till she had the offer in writing. However, medically, she doesn't feel she could make it anymore - and she works so hard, to the point it has interefered with our marriage, She put in a notice saying she preferred to be out in 2 weeks for health reasons, and offered to be available from home afterwards. She also had prepared 7 pages of transition plans.
Director gave her letter releasing her in two weeks (we knew she wouldn't pay her to work at home). But asked her to do a ton of work related to her students before she leaves (probably so she doesn't have to call her after she's gone). There is no chance of a good reference at this place, as things have not gone well. This is a new school, and rumor is the director left the last school due to poor morale too.
Should she work her tail off trying to get these things done? Or do what she can do? She has a lot of ill feelings to this director, and even feels like she was discriminated against for her disabilities.
