I feel like since I returned to teaching full time (a term supply) I’ve not only gone missing in blogland, missing in action, I feel like I’ve alsogone missing from my life.
It’s hard to accept that I only really reidentified who I was and what that meant at the end of March and by mid April I was sailing the sea of adrift and submerged in the world of planning, preperation and assessment.
Now I have to find time to apply for jobs too.
It’s not something I am enjoying. How easily I have fallen into the allconsuming work/ no life balance.
I love my job and I am passionate about it.
I like to do things properly.
I like to do things well.
I like to be sure I am doing the best possible.
I also, however, like my hobbies (all but abandoned since March)/
I like my house and garden.
like love my husband.
I need to be more balanced.
So it’s time to consider the options.
- go part time.
- carry on supply (money may be an issue)
- leave teaching and get a job getting paid less elsewhere.
I am rubbish at decisions.
