Re: Literally about to submit a resignation letter
I left hs band directing this past year. Every year more demands on time away from family, poor leadership, poor communication, and not enough pay. But I stayed in teaching. While I donít regret my decision I do miss ďthose band kidsĒ because they were and are even now the best behaved students in my classes.
All that to say: Teachers everywhere are dealing with apathetic, disrespectful, and downright disgusting behavior. Wouldnít blame you for leaving teaching or leaving now. Itís a thankless job. Sorry for the lack of sunshine and rainbows but thatís how I feel.
Good luck on your decision. Itís not easy. Just know youíre not alone.
