Guys, I left teaching. I did it back in December, actually. It was the best thing I've done for my mental and emotional health. Kids were running that school, and moral was getting bad. My poor neighbor teacher was getting called horrible names by a kid every. Single. Day. And admin didn't do ANYTHING. She'd send him out, and he'd come right back. When my principal announced I was leaving, while people were shocked, SO many came up to me asking for advice. Many were saying how happy they were for me, and how they wished they could get out. I'd like to think I encouraged others so leave, as the school is currently experiencing the highest turnover rate is YEARS. So it got me thinking, if you're someone that wants out of teaching, what's holding you back?
