I think I have just about had enough. After a stressful first month I have a lesson observation rated inadequate and in which the head of English tells me my marking is nowhere near detailed enough, my lessons are relying too much on the shared area and the kids are not making enough progress. Couple that with a heavy suggestion that I either look for another school or fail (bear in mind I have been here 4 weeks!). This is after I have spent every weeknight working until 10-10.30 and weekends. If that is still not enough then I guess this job is not for me. I am now actively searching for a job which does not come with this level of stress and workload; where I can come home and put my feet up, not worry about data, differentiation, resources, marking, lesson planning, homeworks, detentions, assessments, observations, meetings and all the other **** that comes with this awful, awful job. Best of luck to everyone else; you have my utmost respect for sticking this out.
