I'm an introvert and quiet by nature. I love my year team and the extended staff but I also like my alone time. I smile and have chats with people, I go to the staff room every day and stay as long as is reasonable. That said, I feel like the school is 'forcing' me to socialise when I do not want to, or in ways that I am not comfortable with. I like to chat but I'm more of a listener, so I don't say an awful lot in conversations. I also have found that I don't have a lot in common with the other staff members, even when it comes to TV and books. I also prefer lunchtime sessions at Starbucks across the road to evenings out. Despite trying hard to go against my nature the deputy head still thinks I am not social enough and I no longer enjoy going to work over the anxiety this is causing. I feel like I am being punished for being quiet and reserved. Other members of staff don't have a problem with this, they happily respect it, but this one person is spoiling the school for me. What should I do? I don't see myself staying at the end of the year if this continues.
