Mental Health and Support

How's the start to your year going? I am having terrible burnout, but then beat myself up for abandoning my students when I think about it. Anyone else experience this?

Yes, I’m fairly new to the field and work with especially challenging students. Despite only being in my 3rd year, I have stayed in the job longer than any other teacher before me (the 8th teacher in 10 years). And it breaks my heart every time I think about leaving or getting a different job but it also breaks my spirit when I have to make stupid sacrifices because of administrative ignorance or indifference.

I am struggling more this year too. I caught my self looking at job sites. 15 years in and I'm tired. I feel like I work harder every year for less results. That you worry that you are abandoning the students means you still care; if you were thinking F or get'em I'd say it was time to get serious about what is next. I'm finally starting to shake my funk after 4 weeks, take a mental health day and try to find at least 1 good thing for each bad. Hang in there, I bet the good work you do is worth the BS you deal with.
