It's sad to be counting down the days but like many of the posters on here I've reached my limit. My career started in 2004 and will end in 2015. I used to enjoy my job, planing fun lessons and Spending hours displaying children's work proudly. My motivation has been eaten away at, along with my confidence, and to a point my social skills. I can work endlessly and it barely seems to make a dent in my to do list resulting in stress levels far too high. I'm struggling to focus on anything, I'm overly sensitive and feel like I can't get things right. I can honestly say that I'm going through the motions each day but lessons are far from my best (I'm disappointed in myself). Im feeling down and seem to be susceptible to anything going around school. It's struggle to go into work each day - 17 days to go! I'm not sure what I'm looking for here. I've already made the decision to leave and given notice. There's just something not sitting quite right.
