Don't resign this early. If you need to, you can take a leave of absence for a week or 2. During that time, go get a complete physical exam. You may also want to seek some counseling. Doing these things will not magically make everything better,
but, there may be some physical or emotional reasons why you are feeling so overwhelmed. You do not have explain to anyone why you are needing a break. The upcoming holiday season may also be affecting you.
Your teaching situation will not change; you need to take care of yourself by adapting to it.
You do not need to decide today if you are going to resign. Take a break, step back and look at the big picture. A different teaching situation may energize you. When you don't feel so overwhelmed, you can make some plans.
I moved across Texas to start over fresh.
It can be done.
Perhaps you can find a church or sports group to help you find life outside the band hall. You can not keep doing the same things and expect a different result.
I hate my job. HATE IT! Every single thing about it. I hate my admin, hate my ineffective FAD, hate the counselors, hate one of my coworkers (the other one is whatever), hate the school culture and I hate coming to work everyday.
It makes me physically ill. I cry on my way to work at least 3 times a week. I find zero joy in the day to day. It's effecting me outside of work since I'm always tired. My husband says all I do is complain about work.
We have decided that no matter what, I will not return after this school year. I really just want to turn in my resignation but I know people will start treating me poorly but I also want them to know how much they have killed my spirit.
Has anyone turned in a resignation early in the year just because. I have no future job prospects. But emotionally I can't be here again.
