Well, after umming and arring for so long I have finally done it, I have handed in my notice and my contract ceased yesterday! I was in an Academy last year but started at a private institution in September. Well for the massive pay drop and I was led to believe I would be a teacher, no additional responsibilities. It was anything but. I aired my concerns on numerous occasions, promises made and nothing ever happened. The amount of hours per week and no life outside of work, and I have given up so many things I used to do, and love. I thought, with the amazing support of my husband, sod this I want my life back! The school did everything they could try to keep me, from emotional blackmail to threats etc etc. But it cemented my decision. Supply teaching is for now, but I do not know what comes next. Here is to a new adventure, there may be some bumps but by God I will have a life with it though!
