I recently moved to a new area. I had one year of experience teaching at an alternative high school. I accepted a job in Bradenton, FL at a charter school, thinking the hours were the same as the public schools. They are actually 9-5 on campus, plus some meetings at 8:30 and some from 6-8 at night. My daughter just started kindergarten. After only being into the second of week of teaching, I can see this is not going to work. I am a single parent. Our life is literally wake-up, go to school, come home and go to bed and of course work all week-ends. We never see each other. I want to quit. If I quit a charter school, will I ever be hired again? I knew the hours were long, but there is no balance here at all. The demands at this school are very high and I am not making enough money to afford even afford a one bedroom apt in this area. I don't know what to do, but I don't think I can do this for another week. Any advice is appreciated My only other option riight now is to work 100%commision as a health and life insurance agent, as I am already certified. I have never been so unhappy and feel like I am neglecting my child.
