I have now resigned after 7 months of pure hell as a secondary cover supervisor in a secondary school. My previous post is here: https://community.tes.com/threads/cover-supervisor-more-problems-breaking-point-near.774159/ A month ago I had to take a week off because the stress got too much. I went back, and had more problems with behaviour. I really did try to improve things. I got observed by an slt member which I asked for and the lesson wasn't great. Despite nothing alarming going on in the lesson, I was told that I didn't look comfortable (I never really was). Vice principal summons me to her office. Says my 6 month probation period is over and I failed. Too many concerns over my behaviour management, attendance and the fact I don't seem to enjoy the job. They also highlighted how many times I called on call. Was given the option to resign or extend the probation by a month, but significantly improve. I would also have been getting observed almost all the time. As such I decided to resign. No point doing a job which gives me anxiety and I have no passion for teaching anymore. A great weight is lifted off my shoulders but I am hugely disappointed that I couldn't step up to the challenge. Considering leaving the progression completely now.
