Does teaching really get less exhausting?!

    Hi everyone. I am an RQT in a special needs primary school and I absolutely love my job. I am finding, however, that I am always on the countdown to the next holiday and I live for the weekends, simply because I am SO tired! I dread the unrelenting busyness of the week and how exhausted I feel at the end of every day. I didn't feel like this as an NQT, but I suppose I've lost my extra PPA time, gained additional responsibilities and our curriculum has totally changed this year.

    I just want to know, is this a normal feeling in your RQT year? Does it get a little easier? Thank you in advance :)

    Does it get a little easier? With time and experience, yes.

    Does it get less exhausting? No, not really. Been teaching 25 years. I love it, but there is a reason we need our regular holidays.
