So I am in my 6th Year of teaching and I have absolutely had it!! This time last year I was off with stress and Anxiety and over the last 12 months I have managed to go to work and do my job but I feel like a robot. I am seriously considering leaving BUT I really don't know what else I could do. I have dropped down to 4 days but my HOD is less than supportive and just expects me to fit everything in over 4 days instead of 5. I just feel like I can no longer cope with the expectations of marking, dealing with my own behaviour/detentions, work scrutiny, observations and the endless box ticking that has become the job either for SLT or other peoples performance management targets. I am also the least paid n my dept and teach 4 different subjects so I am constantly running between rooms and also have a form (which is stressful when we are expected to be at the door meeting and greeting students and having our lesson ready etc) - most members of my department don't have a form and are based in the same room - one member has 11 students at KS4 whilst I have 40. The sad thing is I always wanted to do this job and enjoy it when I can just actually teach but the endless paper work and expectations are beyond what is a manageable. I also feel as a MPS teacher compared to the rest of my department who are n UPS3 I'm expected to do so much more - I ask for help because I am struggling but everyone else is so busy they can't really help - I'm also teaching outside of my specialism at KS4 which I don't mind - but I don't have the support and the general consensus from my head of department is to just get on with it. I don't know if I can and it's starting to affect my health - I discussed my concerns with my leadership link and I was told that going off sick would affect my integrity. Thanks for reading my rant/moan I guess I'm just asking for advice or ideas of what to do - I know that only I can make the decision to leave and the fact I have over 30 years of teaching left before I can retire I know I need to get out or change my mindset/not stress so much.
