Supporting documentation

posted on August 28, 2012 at 4:00 pm

In my news writing classes, I stress to students the importance of including supporting documentation along with their reports. In that spirit, I offer the following documents for your perusal:

1) My termination notice from Zayed University. I had one year remaining on my contract.

2) My wife’s termination notice from Abu Dhabi Education Council.

3) My April 2012 performance review, lest anyone imply that my termination had anything to do with performance.
