I have got one week left until half term and it cannot come soon enough, I am literally counting the hours until I do not have to be in school anymore. I am an NQT and currently on track to a mental breakdown. I cannot cope with working like this anymore. I work until 11 each night marking books and that is just English and maths, then try to give myself Saturday's off but just end up feeling guilty for not doing any work. I am in year 3 which is a year I never taught on my placements throughout university, but thought that having taught the years either side would help me prepare. I feel like my partner teacher doesn't like me some days and tolerates me because she has to.When I send her the work for the children she will send it back changing nearly everything about it. She is pregnant so I try and put it down to hormones, but she isn't like it with anyone else. I feel like the head teacher doesn't like me either, he is very cold and spoke rudely to me in front of a parent the other day and has only said 1 good thing about my teaching since starting, and he comes in to class everyday. I had a bad placement at university and was placed on a 'cause for concern' in my third year, but when I finished my final block, I had worked so hard and was graded at 'outstanding', I don't understand where it's all go so wrong? I really thought I was ready for this but I just am not coping with it all, and I feel like I'm letting everyone down especially they children. I just don't know what to do, I don't know who to turn to in the school, I feel like an outsider still, apart from my TA who is the most supportive person I know, no one in my family is a teacher so they do not understand, and my friends are all loving their time. If I keep this up I won't make it to Christmas. I just don't know what to do and don't want to quit but I feel it is inevitable at this rate.
