Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It’s been a tumultuous few months for the hundreds of teachers who started the summer learning they were out of a job. Friday, came the news that those jobs had all been saved.
“All I wanted to do was teach and I finally got it, and it was taken away just like that,” said music teacher Sheryl Gamiao.
Gamiao was with the Clark County School District for just a year before she received that letter saying she wasn't going to be teaching this fall.
Then last week when she received another letter telling her she had her job back.
The school district says because more teachers retired or left than originally anticipated, they had enough opening for every teacher that had been cut
The teacher's union said these displaced teachers were used as pawns.
Regardless of why she got her job back, Sheryl is happy to be back in front of a classroom doing what she loves.
“I’m now looking forward to the new school year,” said Gamiao.
Although every teacher will be returning to the district, many of them will be reassigned.
Gamiao however won’t have to worry about transitioning, she will be teaching music once again, but this time at a different school.
Regardless of the fact that all the teachers were brought back class sizes will still increase by two or three students per classroom.
