Probably not the right place for this but... Decided to stop being a teacher (finally, after several goes of 'maybe it isn't really that bad; maybe it will be better at another school; maybe it will be better if I change my hours etc.) and go do something else. Left without anything to go to - realised that while I can teach, and I can teach well, the whole environment is ridiculously stressful and frequently made toxic by the demands of (some) SLT members which are simply another burden to shoulder but which do nothing to benefit the students. Decided that no job should push anyone to the state of being permanently at break-down point. Found something to do after a lot of casting around and being prepared to do pretty much anything to bring in the rent. The new job pays much less than teaching did but it's survivable; I'm treated like the professional I am, trusted to get on with it without constantly being checked up on or having my work 'graded', and .. I don't know...... being treated like an equal member of the team by management.
