...I know I should be grateful to have a permanent contract, but after battling through two terms, I am seriously unsure if I can work at this pace long-term. I miss my friends, my family, and I am sick of thinking about work 24:7. If it weren't for the children, I would happily have resigned at Christmas. I know the deadline is 31st May to give notice and I can't help thinking how much I loved being in school when I was a TA and how horrendous it is now I'm the Teacher. Anyone else dreading the final term?
