    I am sad to say oh great collected to leave teaching. It is no joy any more and list/data obsessed. If you are not a robot your no good

    Cheers for that...... If there was ever a post that advocated pre-moderation of new members then this one is it.

    And with comments like yours this is the reason why I no longer post on here.

    How many years have we known each other? How sad for it to all end like this . . .

    What else can I say? I do hope that you find something satisfying to do from the end of term. The end of your teaching life . . .

    How sad.

    Best wishes for the future

    Oh bigbev, so sad to hear this news. ( I remember your name and posts on Jobseekers too.)

    I mourn the passing of yet another teacher, who I believe personifies what good teaching ought to be about.

    Another one who has had to bow to data/ list obsession and has become a victim themselves.

    I honestly do fear for the future of this great profession. [​IMG]

    So sorry you have finally had to say goodbye Bev and the job isn't what it was. @DYNAMO67 not nice. Big Bev has been a contributor for a long time and has gone through a hard fight with work.
    Big Bev there is life after teaching, I love my non teaching job now. You will wonder why you spent so long fighting and learn to live again. Good luck and take care.x

    Couldn't agree more. If you enjoy being a mindless drone, go into teaching.
