So, here's me in a nutshell: this is my 10th year teaching full time. I have been KS2 leader for 5 years, I lead English, Computing and MFL as well (we're a small primary school). I teach year 5/6. All my lesson observations have been outstanding for the last 4 years. I'm on the governors. In other words, I do what I do well, and the natural assumption of all is that I should be going into senior leadership... but I don't want to. I'm no good as a people leader, and just don't have the self-confidence to be a manager. And besides all else, I don't want to be tied to a desk and away from the classroom. But the fact that I don't want to go into leadership doesn't mean I'm not ambitious/looking to develop. I want to be learning and challenged and progressing, and as things stand I'm in danger of a) getting bored, b) getting jaded, c) getting overlooked/marginalised. I'm not quite at the stage where I want to leave teaching (although the curriculum changes and pressures on year 6 have pushed me closer and closer to that), but I can't just teach - just do what I've been doing - for the next 30 years. So now what? Any ideas out there? All thoughts gratefully received! Thanks!
