I’m not a fulltime teacher, I’m a technician mainly but end up doing alot of small group and one to one tecahing in a school. I am SO tired, mainly beacause of my boss the head of department, he is unbelievable! a complete workaholic and works everyone else into the ground.
I’ve been there two years and have tried to cope with it in different ways because the job has so many other perks! but he is unrelenting, I have tried to talk to him before but he is still as bad, he has a reputation in the school for being so demanding.
I work monday to friday and he is constantly ringing me on saturday mornings, he once texted me at 2am to tell me someone would be coming in the next day to collect a camera..?. He makes a disgustng amount of mess that everyone else has to sort out, he almost made a pregnent teacher faint by gtting her to teach her lesson as well as his in differnt rooms as he was away. She was running from one room to the next trying to teach two lessons, she almost fainted.
He is just so demanding, there is so many other examples I could use, I’m jsut dreading going back after the summer as I know how utterly exhausted I’m going to be and it’s making me feel so tearful. I have anxiety at work and I know it’s beacuse of this situation, no one else in the department will say anything and they all feel the same but I work the most hours it effects me the most. I want to leave and get something more laid back esp if we are going to try for a baby, I do not want to be pregnant and in that environment. I’m just finding it hard as there is no work, it’s all in London
The thing is he’s a nice guy, everyone likes him, the students likes him, he’s always nice about time off if I’m sick (usually just because im so exhausted because of him though) He’s just a bit crazy, to be honest I don’t think he can handle his position as he is always palming off alot of his responsibilites onto other people, when it comes to holidays I’m always really ill at first and I forget what I nightmare it is, it only takes a couple of days before I’m back and I’m exhausted again, somewhere deep down I know it’s just not right to feel iike that
Any advice bees?
