Are there any teachers happy in their jobs on here?

    I loved my job (which I did for 19 years) until I came to teach in the UK. I work with challenging pupils. I do my best to teach them modern languages. However, there is total lack of respect towards me. I feel really stressed out with chaos and constant disruption. Luckily, I have a great mentor. Pity though, I got her after 3 months of teaching. I just wonder what the problem is- is it me or the subject or the number of challenging pupils. My self-esteem is close to zero. I have been thinking about quitting the job.

    I teach music at a very well run school, a subject I have been passionate about since I can remember. Now I get to work with music everyday and inspire others to learn about something so close to me. For that reason, I am extremely happy and wouldn't want to do anything else.
  3. most definitely. i have been teaching for 8 years and am loving every minute of it.

    You beat me to it! Very happy since retiring, but I have done lots of voluntary work in poor schools in India and Asia - wonderful and recommended. The thought of going back into scummy UK secondary schools and dealing with endless behaviour problems makes puking seem fun.
