Hi Everyone, I currently have an amazing full-time position as a middle school teacher at a school I enjoy and I have a not so amazing part-time position as a night school instructor at an alternative school. Don't get me wrong, I knew exactly what clientele I'd be dealing with at the alternative school. I was hoping there would be a little bit of support and/or consistency from administration (plus most of my ten years of teaching I've dealt with difficult students), but this school year has became almost unbearable. The alternative school keeps permitting students into the evening program who don't fit the criteria for their night school (i.e Junior or Senior and able to work on their own without any major behavior issues). I have worked there part-time for the last 4 years. Before this year, I enjoyed working with students who were mostly appreciative of having a second chance and weren't behavior issues. Now, the school is accepting as many students as possible to increase student enrollment for the sake of money and many of those students have out of control behavior with no discipline from administrators when needed. I spend a lot of time creating lesson plans and grading papers for the part-time job, and I feel like at this point it all is for nothing because the majority of the students either don't show up or when they're there they won't do any of the work. I've been physically and emotionally drained over the last few months and I feel as if the only thing that keeps me going is that my main teaching gig is not a nightmare. I've already decided I'm not returning to the part-time position next school year, but I'm really struggling with the idea of finishing out this school year. The extra money is pretty good, but I don't know if I should torture myself for 6 more months just for the sake of money. Also, I feel guilty about wanting to break my contract. Should I just follow my gut and leave or ride out the rest of the school year in misery? I each time I convince myself to go ahead and put my two-week notice in, I talk myself out of it, so I think it's time I listened to the advice of others.
