Hi just looking to put something out there that’s been on my mind. I feel I’m at a crossroads. Work is getting me down as I’ve asked for support with career progression (future planning for slt role however long that may take) and all I’ve got was to be placed on a middle leadership course (I’ve been a middle leader for 7 years) and behaviour seems to be getting worse. Verbal abuse seems like a daily occurrence and has become the norm so very little gets done about it. I love teaching but feel like I’ve lost my spark and unsure whether to pursue a new challenge in life or stay and put up with it. Leaving and getting a lower paid job doesn’t bother me, the worry is more about what I could do instead. Feeling lost and very confused. I love the team I work with and most of the pupils in my classes are great but I know other colleagues are having a hard time and there have been many tears shed already (myself included).
