I have finally secured a place at a school I love. It's not easy as I am teaching out of my specialisation, but I had hoped that after the first year of creating resources, I had found a place I would be happy long-term. I have now developed carpal tunnel. It's been getting worse for months. It's now so bad I can barely hold a pen. I can still teach, but marking is hard and takes even longer than usual. The pain and lack of sleep are getting me down. I'm worried that I won't be able to continue teaching as, what kind of a teacher can I be if I can't mark? Anyone have any encouraging words? It's taken me so long to get this far!
