Hi, There's no other way to say this other than I'm exhausted. I teach a practical subject and this is coursework season, so I guess this is the worst part for me. However I'm in work at 7.30am and I'm not leaving until 7.30pm and I'm trying to play catch up on the weekend. In the last month I haven't had a PPA because each time I sit down to do some work sixth formers are in my room needing help which means my marking is being pushed back and back and even when I do have a free room I'm generally trying to sort something for my students. It's now even starting to affect my planning and the pressure is really on from SLT to get the grades. I have four examined classes, two groups of Year 11 and two big groups at 12 and 13. This last week I've been so stressed I've barely slept and when I do sleep it tends to be work related nightmares. Has anyone got any advice? I can't just say no to these students and there's no escape from this pressure.
