    ... to class teaching!

    After 10 years I am leaving classroom teaching. I've been worn down, for a few years to be honest, but now I have a baby I'm not prepared to put in the time that seems required by most of SLT just to be seen as "good".

    I'm staying in education, just in a different role. I am really looking forward to September!

    Well done to us all for getting to the holidays (or nearly there). I hope to meet more of you at future TES meets.

    Sorry the profession has lost another, but you're right your priorities are so different, now you have a precious little one of your own.
    Enjoy the baby and new role,

    for a moment I feared this was a flounce thread... nice that it isn't.

    There was a time when teaching was considered a family friendly job. Not any more!

    Very best wishes to you @Sillow.

    family friendly?

    I suspect it actively killed any chance of me ever having a family...
