Thank you STW
Congratulations mrwhyte!! That’s great news!
Mrs Binners took a big pay cut last year – with an accompanying reduction in stress – do a job she absolutely loves, also in the charity sector.
You soon adapt to a bit less cash. It is only money. But having an immeasurably happier, and stress-free household you can’t put a price on
Enjoy! 😀Posted 4 months agomrwhyteMember
So a few months ago I posted a topic asking for some advice about leaving teaching. I really wanted to hear other peoples experiences about leaving the profession, as all my friends are pretty much teachers, all moan about it, but have not taken the step to leave.
So after everyone’s advice and stories, it gave me the kick to realise there is life outside of teaching.
This morning I was offered the job with the local Heritage & History charity as their learning officer across their sites. I obviously took it, even though there was a big pay cut, but life is too short to be unhappy in a job you do not want to do.
Just wanted to thank those who commented and gave me the confidence to actually step away from the profession. STW, you are awesome….mostly 😉Posted 4 months agogauss1777Member
I wish you well Mr Whyte, I hope the new job works out well for you.Posted 4 months ago
I teach in a secondary school. Almost everyone I work with is considering leaving. Several have and that just makes the stresses and strains more unbearable. I have been teaching for nearly twenty years, I don’t do it for the pay, or the holidays, or any of the other things that people suggest teachers choose teaching – I do it because I believe there is little more important in enabling, a rewarding and fulfilling life.
However, whilst the job has always been non-stop busy, there was a time when this was to ensure you were doing a good job. Now, with constant change for change sake, ridiculous idea after ridiculous idea, etc etc. – everybody is working flat out, with no time to do their actual job properly. If so, why continue? – for me at the moment, I fear it’s just a mixture of inertia and fear.
I wish you well!
