Hello, I'm currently 16 weeks pregnant (due late November/early December) and last week found out which class I will be teaching next year. Without giving too much detail, I have taught this class before and it was not a pleasant experience. There were difficulties with parents (and some children) and it was an extremely difficult year. Come September I will be 27+ weeks pregnant, moving classrooms, moving year groups and getting to grips with a new curriculum, and with a notoriously difficult class. Having spoken to the Head Teacher a few weeks ago, I made it clear that I'd be happy in any year group except this one...and yet I'm in the one class I asked not to be in. This has left me absolutely dreading work. I haven't been sleeping and have done nothing but worry since I found out and there is still a while to go until September. Even going in on Monday leaves me feeling awful. I'm also really worried about the parents' reaction because there were clashes with some which I don't feel strong enough to have again come September, or when they find out I'm teaching their children again. I have raised this with the Head but it's fallen on deaf ears. Although I think I know the answer (which is, no - suck it up!), is there anything I can do about this?
