I am finding it so hard to keep myself motivated at the minute! I hate spending all my free time planning lessons because those already on the system in school are absolubtly rubbish and so I have to adapt every single lesson which takes up so much time. I love my department, everyone is lovely but we don't really seem to work as a team, everyone seems to plan their own lessons (or obviously use stuff they have created in previous years) and being an NQT my bank of resources is very small. My lesson plans get checked by my HOD (who tells me the stuff available is not good enough) and so I have to create new lessons and resources (although they are good enough for all other members of the department to use) so it really is a case of 'do as I say not as I do'. I just can't motivate myself at all to get all this work done, I can't plan all singing all dancing lessons because I simply don't have the time. In some cases there is literally nothing available in school at all so I have to create it all myself. Is anyone else struggling to keep motivated? I want a life and to not have to think about school all the time, including when I am asleep!!!
