I am feeling very trapped. I love being a teacher but find the politics, paperwork and bullying and bitchiness despressing. I work hard and am keen to improve but stuck on where to go next. I have been a teacher 5 years, I have started a Masters but had to postone my final year due to lack support at school for my course and for funding it.(I can't afford to pay for it myself at the moment) I have subject responsibility but not core subject. I have taken on additional responsibilities and have achieved a great deal. I have travelled and look at teaching in other countries. I have limited support in terms of my professional development - anything I have wanted to do I get part of a chance to do but nothing comes of it. I have been in the same job for five years - same school - one change of year group and a few extra bits and pieces done. I feel like I am going no -where? What can I do to invigorate my career. Leave seems like the only answer!
