Hi all, I have been a teacher for over 10 years and I am tired of the paperwork and monitoring slog of being a full time classteacher. I am on UPS1 and have a TLR for Maths. I have previously worked at schools far away from where I live and now I have a school closer to home that only takes me 20 mins to drive to. But, at this school I always have to organise things for maths which I don't really enjoy. I am tired of it, every minute I have to organise challenges and such to promote Maths! It's tiresome and I just don't like the spotlight to be honest. The classteacher thing is bugging me too, even though we had OFSTED earlier in the year and passed we still have monitoring, observations and all this checking all the time. So fed up with it. So, I am considering applying for PPA jobs to get away from some of these things. But these schools are further away, plus pay cut will be taken with no TLR and adiitional travel costs!. I just want to go to work and don't have too much hassle. I just go to work to get my money! can't be bothered with all this anymore. I thionk I will just aim to work up the UPS instead. MY friends have told me to drop the TLR and stay at my school instead as it is nearer and that PPA cover won't be all rosy as I will left with things the classteacher isn't keen on doing. What do other people think?
