I remember having been told over and over again to stick with teaching because 'it gets easier', but I'm just struggling to see it. I know a lot of it depends on the school and how organised you are, but I just wanted to know whether it is the norm even after 5 years (for example) of teaching that you still have to do reams of work in the evenings and at the weekends? I am quite a completionist/perfectionist with my work so you can probably see the predicament I am in as I'm struggling to get any job satisfaction. There have been times when I have been super organised to try and free up time later in the week, but this 'free time' then ends up getting filled with some other job out of the blue. So I just wanted to know whether there really is any light at the end of that tunnel!
