Hello everyone, I am in desperate need of some helpful advice. I know there are 10000's of posts from others in the same position but I just don't know what to do. I am currently teaching in a primary school, this is my third year and I am just not enjoying it. Since I started, I have never completely loved the job but I have gotten by with lovely supportive staff members. This year I do not have that support and I just don't enjoy myself at all now. I come home every day and just want to burst into tears as I feel emotionally drained. I feel that it is starting to cause real problems with my mental health as I suffer from panic attacks. I am not struggling with the actual teaching, my class are making good progress, are generally well behaved and are lovely children but it is just the actual job itself I do not enjoy right now. I know I want to work with children to make their lives better but I do not think this role is the way forward for me. I find my head teacher unapproachable so I'm at a loss as to what to do next really. I would love some help: When can I hand my notice in/leave? It is November currently so I don't know where that leaves me job-wise, What can I do instead? Are there any ex-teachers who have changed to being HLTA/PPA Cover/TA and enjoy it more? Any other notes/guidance/words of wisdom?
