Hi everyone. I've been a Reception class teacher for 5 years in two schools. I always knew that teaching wouldn't be my "forever" career, and I'm finally coming to the end of my tether. I'm struggling to bear the stress any longer. I work in a wonderful school with amazing staff and a very supportive headteacher, so the school definitely isn't the issue. I just find the general teacher workload too much to handle, if I want to ensure I'm doing a good job. I used to love thinking of new resources to make to excite the children with, but I don't feel this buzz anymore. I've truly lost complete interest in my job, and the thought of the amount of work I have to do this weekend before we go back on Monday makes me anxious. I feel I've given it a good run for 5 years, and as I've been considering leaving teaching for over a year now, I think I've given it a good chance. I'm ready for a change. My vague "plan" is to leave at the end of Summer. I've been looking at jobs to gauge the kinds of alternative careers out there/pay/qualifications needed. I guess I just wanted to get this out there, and if you have any advice as to how I can work out what I should do next, it would be much appreciated. I've scoured previous threads about leaving teaching but find a lot of posters have subject specialisms such as maths or languages that they have been able to apply in their new job. At the moment I don't have a clue what I want to do, and my undergrad degree was in Psychology. Thanks for listening. Any advice would be appreciated.
