Re: Planning time for lone directors?
Don’t repair the instruments. Send them to be fixed. No funds? The parent pays. No funds? Tell admin you either need funds or time during the day. Simpler planning. Seems like your schedule can be simplified to 4 preps. Still a lot but that should help. Why work yourself to the bone for a school that doesn’t care? Lighten your load. I doubt admin will notice. Everyone who says “do it for the kids”? Well they’re not in your situation. Your health is at stake, no one else’s. Take care of yourself because no one else will. At the end of the year the kids will move on and it won’t make a difference whether you worked till 9pm or 5pm. They won’t know. Put your head down and do what you have to do until you can get out. Time being taken up by admin? Take your laptop with you and plan there. If they complain tell them it’s your planning period. If they would like your full attention then you need another planning period or planning won’t get done.
