I am marking for the first time this year - have been teaching almost 8 years now and want to enrich my teaching (and yes, also earn a bit extra). Found the whole process of getting to grips with the online software and understanding how it all works - practice, qualification etc. (etc. etc.) rather difficult given the fact that I am still working full time (plus middle management role) and do this in spare time. From the word go my team leader has been replying to questions in a tone that indicates irritation with my questions - spoke on the phone a while ago and was left feeling like an fool for having contacted them and almost daring asking the questions I did! I am at the point now where I dread sending questions for review or having to email them (every email I have sent so far has had some sort of snidy remark/tone in the reply). Any comments or help appreciated - I am on the verge of considering quitting this altogether. Does not feel worth it to mark thousands of questions over a 2 week period only to get treated like this by someone who is supposed to be supporting me. Just does not seem worth the more or less £400. Am I being overly sensitive?
