Hello Basically, I've had a tough time at my induction school. I want to run through a list of things that seem off, but I genuinely am not sure if it's me that's the problem or the school? Is changing schools too drastic? Any tips on how to change schools and still survive financially in-between? Starting in September, the HoD and my mentor both told me that one of my classes had been allocated to me by mistake. This group was apparently known to be a tricky one and the plan was to put one of the most experienced teachers on the job, someone who had literally decades of experience. The thing is, I had been really clear with the school that my biggest weakness was behaviour management, but from the get-go I had to deal with this seriously challenging class. So I was given support - and yet, here is where it gets kind of weird - I have been told many, many times about the amount of support I've been getting. I feel like I should apologise for getting so much support! But I don't *actually* feel like I've been supported? It's completely bizarre. I mean, I'm looking at the last observation feedback my mentor did - and not only am I failing about six of the standards, but there's this long description of all the support I've got. And I kind of agree, there has been a great deal of support, and yet it somehow has not been very...*supportive*. It's almost like it's used to put further emphasis on my own failings - like: how can someone mess this up so bad when they've been given so much support? And then it gets even weirder! I felt like I needed to pin down what exactly my mentor wanted to see in regards to marking, so I took a look at some of his student's books. I wasn't trying to be sneaky about it, I just grabbed a few of his books and took a look. And I literally could not find the evidence of the kind of amount of marking he wanted me to do. It was crazy! I was thinking, where is it? What does this mean? I thought about it for a while and decided that it was probably something like, he expects me to do loads of marking because I'm still learning, but he knows how to cut corners when he needs to. I don't know. Lastly, my mentor keeps telling me that by-and-large, students at my school are well-behaved and want to learn. And if they do not behave it is because my lessons need to be better. I agree! But at the same time, I swear that *not* every, not even most of the students fit his description. A lot of them are pretty rude, as you might expect from the average teenager. A lot of them are pretty lazy, as you might also expect. But I find myself stuck in a situation where the emphasis on my own failings feels so huge that I almost can't believe the evidence of my own eyes any more - are the kids really badly behaved, or is it just me? Wow, I didn't mean mean to write so much ---- I just feel so confused, and scared, I want some advice but I hope what I've written gives a sense of my situation. Do I sound like I just need to knuckle down and stop complaining or does it seem like I really need to find another school? I've only got one term left :/ Leave, or Remain?
