In the course of 8 months, I have been assaulted 3 times, threatened on multiple occasions, and work in a school with minimal consequences. New principal next year. Should I stay? Is there hope?

Assaulted? That doesn’t sound manageable. Stay and get some classroom management experience, learn the hard way, earn some $ but look for another job for next year- or ASAP!! I taught in a bad school and unless you have that special gift of turning around the wild child and dealing with all the issues...run

I just finished my first year and this legit sounds like my year. I also have a new principal coming next year, and I would not be staying if i didn’t. I’m going to give it at least another year, and then leave if it’s not any better. Very personal decision and super hard. Good luck!

Well , if there’s a new principal, there’s some hope. If there’s no change, though, I’d look elsewhere. You shouldn’t be assaulted. That’s not acceptable

also think about who you are working with closely. I almost left this year for a new school, but my math department is so supporting that I ignore my awful adminstration because I get the support from my content specialist and department

I think it's time that we suggest to the management that the teams which have very little significance of coming to office be allowed to work mostly remote. People can come in once in a while to meet and greet and have bonding
I feel it is really unnecessary that people should relocate to Bangalore just to come to the office 2 days a week. Just think about all the traffic, rents and covid uncertainty of course.
