Don't know what to do!

    I started a new job this September, praying that changing schools would be the solution. It's not. I'm miserable! I have been teaching for 9 years and have loved it until the last two. But I'm tired now. Tired of kids being rude, tired of losing my weekends and leaving the house by 6:45. I just don't know what I can do! I am a maths teacher and have some publishing experience. Ideally I'd like a part time role but I don't know how I could retrain in a new role part time. Or if it's even possible. Any suggestions from maths teachers who have left the profession? I'm close to breaking point!

    Getting out a starting something new is really tricky and needs careful thought and planning. Many decisions depend on your financial situation.
    As a maths teacher you might consider tutoring as a bridge to a new life outside teaching. This would mean you could take a part time role, possibly outside teaching whilst training for or applying for other jobs.
    There are plenty of threads about people in the same position as you so - most seem to be on the workplace dilemma forum.
