Surely you can have a couple of days off work? Burning yourself out isn't good for you, and I'm sure the kids wont be getting as much attention as usual. You gotta look after yourself...

Think I'll join you with the burnout - even my computer has given up from overwork.

At least I have next week off, but am dreading coming back to piles more!

Your health should come first, but short of not having the time, perhaps some relaxing baths in the evening and being pampered. Try to switch off for at least an hour when you are at home. As you say you are making up the resources yourself.

Is there a way to get heard about getting more resources? :grouphug:

Am just about to have a bath...
in terms of resources we are very low on money and a new stupid system is being brought in from April where we have to order everything 3 months in advance - it's never going to work!!! We have different kids coming in and out all the time so we can't order things like that.

Short of spending my own money not much i can do except chain myself to my pc and become resource queen!!

well a bath sounds like a good idea for you! you seem to be taking so much on at once, you sound like you need a good pampering session! anyway, try not to work to hard honey, i know you have to, but you get what i mean, you sound like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders sweetie! xxx

Sometimes i feel that way - got a text from work this eve - was trying to relax!! Saying we need to bring clothes to do gardening in during our staff meeting.

Last time i looked i was a teacher, we had loads to discuss as staff, and it's not in my job description to clean up the school playground :evil:

i am seething - we had a health and safety inspection and the head has decided that despite the fact we are teaching all day we have to do manual work in our staff meeting.

aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

:angry:

Refuse to do it- say it's not in your job description. Then get in touch with your union and let them know of this sham!
