I feel like my story is the same as so many others at the minute but I have a few questions I was hoping someone could help with. Sorry in advance for the rambling post. To try and be brief, I started at a new school as assistant ht in September and am simply not coping with the demands placed on me. My workload is out of control, I am due 2 observations this week (having already had 2 this half term), I am being asked to submit files for scrutiny constantly as well as emailing all planning to ht every week and on it goes. The result is I have become overwhelmed and am finding it difficult to even plan lessons never mind mark books. I am behind with everything and am sat here crying rather than work to get on top of things. I have had numerous emails from the ht this weekend requesting paperwork I haven't completed. I haven't slept properly in weeks and I just don't think I can do this anymore. I am considering selling my house and moving back to my parents- I am 42 ! Anything to not have to carry on, I can't do it anymore. I feel sick at the thought of tomorrow and I don't know what to do about it.
