I'm a recently appointed deputy head, Year 6 teacher with a responsibility for RE in a Catholic school, attendance and this year I will be the induction tutor for an NQT. Despite having been a teacher for nearly 20 years, I really struggle to keep on top of my work, whilst maintaining some kind of life. It's a constant battle and it seems to be getting worse. In fact, the thought of doing this for the next 20 years, fills me with horror and I'm seriously considering jacking it all in! However, before taking such a drastic step, I thought I might, at the start of a new school year, try again to see if I can make it work without being constantly on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I would really appreciate any ideas from anyone who has found a work life balance whilst still jumping through all the hoops and doing everything expected. I suspect it's impossible but would welcome any thoughts nonetheless. I love my job but it's making me seriously depressed :-((. Thank you in advance.
