Hi After many years in a dull job where I could feel my life slipping away, I went back to University to do a PGCE. I couldn't get a job at first, and ended up in a temporary post where I was very unhappy. I was delighted to get a new job in a lovely school last September, and at Christmas I completed my NQT year. Despite having a couple of very challenging children in my class, I mostly love my job and enjoy being with the children. In many ways, it is all that I hoped it would be. However, it is also every bit as stressful as people warned me it would be, and I am disposed to be quite a worrier. Combined with this, I seem to be ill all the time. I'm starting to get to the point where I'm wondering if it's all really worth the stress and the impact on my health. I can't just leave my job (financial commitments, etc., etc.) and I don't want to go back to a mindless office job where I spend the day watching the clock, so does anyone have any ideas what else I could do with a PGCE? Sorry for the long post! Thanks.
