After teaching for 8 years in secondary school i have decided to resign and will be finished by December! I feel free! Im sure im just one of many who are leaving or planning to leave because they cant handle the pressure. In fact pressure is something i dont mind but when it comes to meaningless data entry or other **** that we have to do that have nothing to do with teaching and learning i have to say no, i would rather spend time with my family on the weekends. I do have a job lined up which is only slightly less that im on now. In fact if you work out the pay by the hour im probabaly on the same. I just wanted to share this with people who are thinking of leaving that another career is possible.
