Glad you’re happy with your decision OP. I’m still in teaching, but in private language schools now. I have no half terms, no super long holidays and do 6 hours teaching (not PPA or anything like that, actually teaching classes) every day Mon-Fri. I have no need for massive holidays because my workload is more than doable in the equivalent of PPA time I have, and my stress levels are almost zero. Of all the jobs I’ve ever done, it was only in teaching in state secondary schools that I felt so physically and mentally exhausted every 6-8 weeks that I was desperate for a holiday. I enjoyed teaching in state secondaries, but surely that need for a break can’t be healthy.
