Hi, I've been a primary school teacher for 20 years, am now a class based deputy head and am regularly judged as outstanding in my teaching. However, for months now I've felt that I can't go on. I love teaching but find the relentlessness of the paperwork and marking exhausting. After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is sit and mark, plan etc. Yet I understand that this is essential in order to do the job properly. I put my heart and soul into it during the day but I'm just too knackered in the evening!!! The thought of doing this for another 20 years fills me with dread. I also realise I'm not alone in feeling like this I just wondered whether anyone has taken the plunge. If so, what did you do? And is the grass greener?
