Without going into too much detail, I am fairly set on not signing my contract for next year. Yes, this was my first year teaching. Yes, I know that it is always difficult, but I am humble enough to say that teaching in an urban setting is NOT for me. Kudos to those of you who can do it, but I am not one of those people. Going home miserable every night has started to impact my whole life and my marriage. I refuse to let the stress of my job put a damper on my marriage. I am now applying for teaching jobs in more middle-class areas. I worked as support staff as an Out-of-School Time Facilitator for over six years in a school that was in a middle class socioeconmic area, and I've seen the difference that school has to my present school. I'm also applying for management jobs in a field similar to the one I was in prior to taking my current job. I feel good about my decision, but I just have one concern. What do I state as my reason for leaving? I just don't want to shoot myself in the foot. Also, I know that this post may not be the most politically correct. I'm also not looking to debate suburban and urban schools. I just appreciate any input that you may have. Thank you!
