I quit last Thursday. I gave them the option of 2 weeks or more to transition my Kindergartners but they had me out by the next day. I was doing the same thing as every other teacher and yet the Principal would be in my room about 5 times a day - telling me how to stand, where to stand with them in line, etc… I was driving 1 hour each way and Thursday morning I was so tired (this was after a few times driving home and having trouble staying awake) that I just made my decision.
I will find something else. Something where caring about your class and doing things right is acceptable and not being in constant fear like every other teacher in the school. I already have 2 leads. Plus, I have 3 MRI’s, and X-Ray, carpel tunnel to look into and I have to go back to PT for my TMJ.
At least I got to go boating this weekend! I do miss my class though!
