And I know that contract situation, a year ago we were all on the brink of being fired and the chance was my school I work at was going to be discontinued. Very demotivating. I just continued to work, it did depress me and worry me and I got quite gloomy, but I have a great job and working with children's books as I do is always fun, so it kept me going.
Did my best, just worked hard and efficient, always kept me head down and now I'm the only one left in the team. The rest either retired or left with drama because they found 'mselves so overly important.
My job's pretty secure now except the risk of something happening to the way our school is organized (a likely possibility btw).
My superiors never joked about the chance of me losing my job. They did tell me it was unlikely and if, everyone else would have to go too, but it could happen.
