    My Ex-Boss Is Badmouthing Me

    I was let go from my teaching job in June 2012. Since then, many teachers have been fired from that school district for made-up reasons, as I was. Yesterday, I *finally* got a job offer, but it was *thousands* less than I was looking for, because the administrator offering it...
