Dear Colleagues I'll try to lump it all into one message... For fear of identification, lets just say im Black british with a disability. My disability manifested in front of my head one day. A common condition but I am now medically suspended due to their upset. The letter from occ health to doctor stated I had no time off in years there. Doctor confused by issue but has received no answer. So I am at home. I cant go out because students and parents ask questions. Teacher friends have been criticised for socialising with me.... I don't want their life complicated. My hod is my kit person and no word, letter, email or text in 5 weeks. No answers to calls either. I have been replaced til end of year. Classes are no longer mine. I have been dropped from summer trips. I only expected to be off for a month. Now I have given up. I am isolated. Ironically I am becoming ill with unhealthy thoughts. I am in short broken. Oh union useless - yes I have tried. why mention colour - I was told not to be sensitive when called the n-word and a student had placed dog faeces in my drawer - I was told not to cause a **** storm. Apparently im a great teacher... I do not get stressed and manage heavy workloads with good humour. What am I doing wrong....?
