Re: Iím so close to quitting. Anybody else?
I'm also starting my 5th year this year and I have completely felt the same way. I was so excited to be a band teacher through college but found myself the last two years spending my conference periods looking up other career paths to take. Turns out it was the position I was in of being the sole teacher teaching K - 12 band was exhausting every single day. So I left and became an assistant and my stress has greatly improved and teaching is a joy again. I completely agree with others on here that it may just be the location you're at. Either way good luck to you!
