Hello all. I've been posting the drama that is my NQT year so far across New Teachers and Workplace Dilemmas. Story so far: NQT year started in a way that felt like being hit by a car. Haven't been supported very well by my HOD/NQT Mentor. Started having awful panic attacks, signed off with work related panic attacks and anxiety as of 10/10. Yesterday, my HOD (who is also off sick) started texting me about sending assessments to mark over half term - she didn't know why I was signed off. I told her why I was off sick and asked her not to send over marking or communicate about work. I woke up this morning to more texts - asking for details on where all my classes had gotten up to. Specifics about what exam practise year 10 had done so far. This woman, who knows why I am off school, chose to send me messages that caused an explosion of worry in my chest just to make her life easier. She has known how i've felt for weeks, and made reassurances and promises that were not kept. Left me with 12 sets of books, 100 year 7 assessments and lessons to differentiate for children firmly on the SEN register with absolutely no help - even going as far as to impose deadlines on some things. This is the final straw for me, i'm done with this woman and this school. I refuse to go back when the person in charge of me clearly doesn't give a rat's ass, meaning I will go back and be expected to get on with it, marking all the cover work and assessments that were done in my absence. I want to resign. Whether that means I go on to a different school or leave education entirely is up for discussion, but right now all I know is I am NOT going back to a school that has broken me as a person. Finally, to get to the point: How can I put this across in a resignation letter with minimal burning bridges? Left to my own devices, i'm tempted to just copy and paste what I wrote above.
