Teacher Burnout

Teacher Burnout

Hello teacher friends! How are you holding up this year? Personally, I am struggling. I have taught for 29 years and the changes I have seen, especially in the last 5 years are becoming unbearable for me.

I have only 15 students in my classroom but with all of the different needs presented by those 15 it feels more like 50 some days. I am seriously contemplating leaving the profession after this year.

A teacher friend has turned me on to a podcast which is an attempt to turn my path around but I feel like I've made up my mind. It's time for something new.

For as long as I can remember my life has been about teaching children or caring for them and I am ready for a change of pace. The catch is that since this is all that I have done with my life, I am not trained to do much of anything else.

I live in a rural location so the options for jobs after teaching are few but the reality is that even after 29 years I can not just retire and do nothing. I have looked into some remote jobs to replace my income if I do decide to leave teaching. I am just curious to know if anyone else out there has been thinking about this same thing. What options do you have for working after being a teacher? Please share you thoughts with me, I'd love your inspiration.
