I have had enough. I am so stressed at work. The kids are ridiculous kinds of rude. Yr 9 are the worst and many staff have noticed. But I feel like not a single student has any respect for me at the moment. I feel like bursting into tears at the end of every lesson I teach. I am not doing a good job in the classroom, I am not doing a good job as a leader in my team. Nothing I do is good enough. When I try and do something to help people out it gets thrashed back in my face with not so much as a 'thank you but...' I cried most of the drive home. I tried to talk to my LM today about how down/stressed I am feeling but it fell on deaf ears as they have no emotional intelligence. There are no other jobs around (near enough to commute to and I already commute an hour which doesn't help). I never get stuff done at home. I feel on the verge of a meltdown and am expected to do so much. And to top it all off, it's the anniversary of my Grandad's death today and because I was so stressed at work the first moment I had a second to think about him was about 5pm. In the words of the kids: 'FML'.
