Good morning everyone! Science Teacher here. I am seen as a NQT in England, but with scientific research experience in four countries, bits and pieces of professional experience in different industries, and three years of part time teaching experience in two different countries. I am in Education because I want to inspire the new generations, in a context when working for science doesn´t look very promising, and to share my experience, passion and enthusiasm. Long story short...Since September this year, I work at a relatively small boys school (of around 550 students), where most teachers have been hanging out for a few years already. This year, as my first year I have been given a few bottom sets (years 7 to 10), and one triple science year 10. My situation with the bottom sets is frustrating, as I am mostly a "teenager babysitter" and behaviour manager, and the kids won´t do any homework on a weekly basis, or any revision before their exams. That´s not my fault (I keep being told), but the socio-cultural context of the area where this school is located. The only "good" group of students I have is a triple science with better students, but they are used to their previous science teachers, who gave them everything done, while I use more of an "active learning" approach, mixed with the usual passive learning they seem to enjoy more. These kids have complained about me several times, stating that I can´t teach, and using any excuse that they can find, always behind my back to other teachers, and never directly to me. My feeling is that they just want to get rid of the new teacher, but the school is very supportive. Other teachers like my approach, and they are very happy for me to make students think and to take them out of their "comfort zone" at times. The Head Teacher, HoD, SLT and other teachers seem to like me, and 99% of the feedback about my teaching I get is outstanding. How would you deal with that in terms of emotions and how to face the situation from now on? It just feels so draining. Nothing new for you all, I know, but I don´t really know if this is worth it, or I should just quit all this? I would like to hear different opinions and would really appreciate your time to give me any "psycological" advice. Have a great day everyone!
