I am three months into my teaching career and dislike it so much...I'm not sure if this is normal but honestly I am questioning why I thought this was a good career path for me??

I feel the same way. I’m halfway through and just hate who I am when I leave the school. I’m taking the next year off to see if I want to come back to teaching.

Yeah maybe get out now. The students don’t deserve that

It’s ok. Teaching isn’t for everybody. You do you

The first year is always the hardest.

It’s tough for sure, but I was taught to not judge the career by your first year. There are lost of facets of teaching that are tough but if you LOVE having a positive impact on kids and can see that no matter what you are going through push through and commit to growing and learning how to be the most effective teacher you can be. The first year is hard for everyone!
