I have been teaching for 12 years now, having progressed to HoD 8 years ago. I don't really wish to progress further but now find the job so damn easy (I am no gloating). I can teach standing on my head and now find zero challenge in the job... Ultimately I am bored stiff. I know it may seem an odd emotion to be experiencing, but it is how it is. I do not wish to change school before that gets posted, as I am at the best possible school really. It is also nothing to do with it being early in the term as I have been bored stiff for a couple of years now! Pay, pension and holidays are too good to lose haha! I am also extremely good at my job.
