.....or, how do you get through? I am about 8 weeks into a new 2-year contract. Things are already bad, almost nothing is like what it was supposed to be and I feel very mislead. All of my reasons for coming here have been negated by either poor management decisions or misleading information and I feel that spending the remaining contract time will be a waste of two years of my life (at a stage in my life where I don't have a lot of time to waste). I can't get out and about - that's part of the problem - so most ususal 'get away from it all' outlets are denied me as this country has no public transport to speak of. Making social contacts is difficult as there is basically no one at the school at the same life stage as me and without transport meeting people from outside is just about a mission impossible scenario. The school is such that I fear the impact that staying will have on my future employability. I've been told that the local decent schools will not hire staff from my current school, for example. But equally, leaving would impact on my future employability as, though for very good reasons, my work history already looks inconsistent. So advice from other people - how do I get through? Right now the remaining contractual time seems like a life sentence. Thanks for any constructive guidance that people can give me.
