Shanehurley - dont let us put you off. My workload now is still more manageable than when I was training - there may be more work, but I understand what I am doing (generally!), can do things the way I want (generally!) and you see the rewards of all your hard work in the classroom. Also, nothing beats the planning expectations of your training. There are ridiculous expectations in terms of paperwork, but the actual JOB of TEACHING remains one I love and wouldn't change for the world. It is worth it - its just a shame that we cant put 110% effort into the job we love.
