Im on my final placement. I have 5 and a half weeks left before I get my QTS. But the whole way through my training, Ive found teaching to be quite a struggle. I dont want to give too much away incase someone I know sees this. I have voiced my concerns with my tutor in uni and the teachers in my department are being very good with me. they say I plan well but the biggest problem I have is keeping the lesson interesting and keeping the pupils on task. also behavior management and low level disturbances,like the pupils talking over me when I'm trying to explain things to them etc. Im really trying hard to get everything right but it seems that no matter how much I try, or how many behaviour management techniques I try, nothing works. Im in school at 8am every day, dont leave till 5.30-6 and then am up till 11-12 everynight trying to keep on top of lesson plans/evaluations/resources/CPD file etc etc. Its never ending, and for all the work Im putting in and then to not get very good grades, Its very disheartening. I dont think I want to be a teacher any more. My anxiety levels have shot up, am back on medication, and have a constant tightness/pain in my chest because of the stress and anxiety im feeling about placement.
