Hi all, I hate writing this post, but I really need some help. Most of last year, I was unhappy teaching. Despite having my husband and hobbies, I have a very hard time turning the job off mentally at the end of the day. I feel like my body runs on anxiety all school year. The actual teaching with the kids is fine, it's everything else. I moved to a school closer to home this year. I was hoping that a reduced commute could make things better for me. I was apathetic about the job offer when I got it, so, in hindsight, I shouldn't have taken it. Now, here we are, and I'm in a somewhat toxic environment with a culture of micromanaging admin and teachers regularly working until 6:00-7:00 PM to get things done. I'm so anxious and exhausted that I have no energy in the classroom. This is the first time I feel like burnout is affecting my actual teaching. Normally I can push through it during my time with the kids. I'm considering resigning mid-year. I'm not going to teach after this year because it is not a sustainable career for me, so I'm not worried about them holding my contract. But how long do I give it? Part of me feels like things could get to a more manageable level after the start of the year. Do I wait and see and leave in December if the overwhelm persists? Do I stick it out through the whole year and hope therapy can see me through?
