I teach Secondary Maths, and there are a few students who aren't doing so well in my Year 11 class. My head of department has asked me to run a lunch time intervention for them in an attempt to boost their GCSE grade by end of Year 11. I know this question may sound daft to ask, because clearly, every teacher would easily say "yes, I would" on the face of it. But thinking about it, do I have to? I feel pressured to do it, but honestly? I don't want to. I'd rather enjoy my lunch break, or go home at the end of the school day instead of, essentially, being forced to take on more teaching hours. It's a delicate situation though. I don't want to come across rude, or lazy. But I'm tired of being a "pushover" (or whatever you'd call it), and doing it just because my HoD says so. You can probably tell I'm pretty disillusioned by all of this. Apologies if I come across just trying to get out of doing something that is technically my "duty" but isn't actually my duty. And just to clarify, of course I want the kids to do well at GCSE, but why should I give up more of my time, on top of all the marking, planning and assessing I do?
