I was in a similar situation years ago. I was going to quit at Christmas. A friend encouraged me to not do that. Finish the year he said. It will be tough, but finish what you started.
35 years later I retired....as a band director. I regrouped. Did some soul searching. I made myself better. Found some mentors. Had a successful career.
Wishing you the very best. Try to remember why you wanted to be a teacher. Revisit those thoughts. Find some joy and peace....in your teaching and outside the school day.
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.
