I keep having mixed thoughts about teaching. I'm just not sure I'm cut out for the ridiculous workload! I teach secondary English and find the endless marking, planning and assessing such a strain on my personal life. I don't feel like i'm actually teaching my kids anything (although what 'teaching looks like i;m not even sure) I don't feel confident in my lessons and I know my lessons are nowhere near as polished as they need to be for Ofsted. Lots of my classes are off task. I seem completely unable to get work out of some kids and the others are just really chatty. My y11s have their English exam coming up in January and I'm so scared they won't do very well and it will be my fault. My biggest complaint however is all the marking/ planning- I've got 3 sets of controlled assessments to mark and i need to plan SOW for all my classes for the new year. I managed to not write SOW for the last unit they all did, but i feel this resulted in average lessons. I have no motivation to mark work or plan lessons and January 3rd is scaring me A LOT! Should I quit, or is this normal?
