    I know exactly how you are feeling. You are competing with
    young ones and the system loves newbies. They don't cost
    as much and are easy to mold. I would suggest subbing for
    awhile and inviting the principal to come in and observe you.
    No newbie can do that and that gives you a great advantage.
    I found an honest principal who favored quality over low cost
    or worse yet politics. You will too.
