Your personal happiness is the most important thing you have in your life. I think as band directors, there is a pressure where we have to "serve" our communities, "serve" our kids but when do we serve ourselves? If you're feeling like you want to quit, it is OK to explore other options besides teaching.
Don't worry about the students - someone else is out there looking for a job. You don't go home to your band hall or students, you go home to yourself and your family. You need to look out for yourself because no one else will.
