So Saturday has been and gone, Sunday has flown by, as usual. Spent some lovely time with my horse,hardly any time with OH as he works weekends but I'm now sitting here with my usual Sunday feeling: I just feel down. Just 'down'. I wish I didn't feel like this- in fact after the Christmas hols I had told myself to go in with a new positive attitude and start again, but things have seemed to get worse. - Department still don't speak/ act as a 'team' - Whole school up in arms about academy status - Behaviour of the children is awful- not so much my classes but those who I don't teach- the other day a 6ft boy squared up to me all because I said he had to leave the corridor. I am 5ft on a good day. - I seem to be losing my way with lessons- It is so hard to try and teach fun inspiring lessons when in reality I feel lonely- even sad sometimes. - I also have to do the dreaded 'admin' lessons at some point regarding targets, levels so far, etc. but have left it so long I'm not sure where to start (my own fault I know!) I'm not sure why I am writing this, other than it gets it off my chest. I am off for a bath now, hopefully some bubbles will help to relax me, but in reality I feel like I need a massive cry- yet I'm not totally convinced why.
