I'm at a low SES school in a wonderful district. I don't care for the administration at our school (cold, not too supportive), and the turnover rate is quite high with staff. My team changes every year and the administration has also changed every year I've been there (3 years). This is my only school to teach at, and prior to teaching I worked in the "real world" for 3-4 years. I teach 3rd grade. Half of my class is below level, 1/3 are ESL, 3 are SpEd, and 5 are major behavior problems. I am worn out each day and have come to really despise my job, and sadly, much of the time, dislike nearly half of my class. The passion for what I do is gone... I'm overwhelmed by all of the daily planning, grading, gathering, creating, meetings, trainings.... I miss adult interaction, and I miss being around men (I am single, 29). I am trying to transfer out of my school into one of the better schools in the district... I have had 2 interviews with wonderful principals and amazing schools. However, after this last interview, I just don't know if I have the energy or desire or passion to teach anymore. It wears me out to think of moving into a new classroom, learning the new schools' ways. My parents (who paid for me to go back and get my certification) told me I should try another school for a year and see how I feel then. Co-workers of mine agree. Honestly, I'm tired of working my tail off for nothing. No appreciation from parents, administration, and especially not my kids who treat me poorly all week. And I'm not a bad teacher - most teachers at my school, especially on my team, feel like this too. I just need advice. I feel crummy after this last interview, speaking with a very excited and passionate principal and team leader who loved their school and just feeling like "Who Cares?". Any thoughts?
