Hi, I am just having a terrible first year. Not because of the school so much but more because of my own situation. My class is excellent, my teaching is rated at very good in every observation and my TA is cool but the other person I work with is just.......I dont even have words to describe and I feel she really brings me down. The other teachers at school could not care less whether I or any other NQT exsist hence all 3 of the NQT's keep to themselves! (I know this does not sound as bad as some of the horror stories I have heard) Mainly I am having a horrible time at home with personal issues with the "husband". I feel I need to take this time out and continue next year. Is this possible? I know medical grounds is the main reason people get out, but could I leave and continue at another school? Are there many people out there that get a job after leaving in NQT year?
