Hi, when I started my teaching post in September I had a certain timetable and things were going relatively smoothly. For several reasons, a couple of months ago my timetable changed. The problem arose when I realised I was given some extra challenging classes, on top of the horrific ones I already had. As a result, I'm now severely distressed. I cry almost every day, I actually fear some classes and I've come to hate getting to school. What is the rule about the timetable you get during your NQT year? Can it be altered? Can you request your old timetable back? What should I do?
