I had a really rough time at my job this year. I had some major conflicting issues with ethical and philosophical objections to the way the school does things, real long story. At any rate-- I secured an AWESOME job for next year, in which I get to start an autism program. I am pumped. I'm having such a hard time making it to the end of my contract. It ends the second week of Aug. Part of mr REALLY wants to just put in two weeks and leave it at that. It's so hard to wake up in the morning and I have parents who verbally abuse me with an admin that doesn't back me up. At the same time, how dumb is that to break a contract when I've made it THIS far. I guess I had a bad day and just wish I could enjoy my summer, especially since I have a new job to look forward to. What would be the consequences of breaking my contract,?? I don't think any because I have the new job??? I'm just so checked out and almost feel it would be better for the kids to have fresh meat in the teacher position (literally). Any thoughts?? Obviously if I stay I'll do my best ... It's just incredibly hard to get knocked to the ground (literally and figuratively) on a daily basis. Help!
