Next week I plan to tell my principal that I am not coming back next semester. I understand that this has consequences and I have thought it through thoroughly. The bottom line is I am so miserable in this position that the only thing that scares me more than leaving mid-year is staying a full year. I dread going to school every day. On the way to school I stop in a parking lot and just sit there for twenty minutes dreading the day. I cannot keep doing this for five more months. I have to get out. Can anyone give me advice on how to break the news to my principal? Has anyone been in this situation before?
