Default Seeking advice

I am almost nearing my 10 years of teaching.
Currently feel very much burned out by everything that happened this year.
I just find that school programmes are very tightly packed and there is no breathing space. Not sure if this is my school thing or across the nation?

Thinking of tendering my resignation end of this year.
I think I donít fit well into the system although I spent a decade trying to do so.
What can one do beyond teacher?

Also what if I would like to switch to flexi-adjunct in another school? Will this option be viable if I resign this year?

I know we should not be a quitter but if I continued this way, I really feel like losing my hope to live. So I thought the alternative is to quit even though I am put my financial health at risk. T_T

The problem is that if everyone just focus on teaching, there is little for management to carry out performance appraisal on.

At the end of the day, the system demands a quota of A, B, C and Ds.

The amount of non-teaching work people take on will then be the deciding factor.

But of course, right? Performance as a teacher, appraised based on how well you take care of $10k worth of assets, or how well you supervised the vendor in setting up the tentage for the school event.

Every teacher a Form Teacher
Every teacher a CCA Teacher
Every teacher a Committee Member
Every teacher a CCE Teacher
Every teacher a First Aid Trained Teacher
Every teacher a S.Ed Trained Teacher
Every teacher an E-Pedagogy Facilitator

Was anything missed out?

I guess some people manage to "exempt" themselves from some of these. But most will be carrying these workload?

Default Result is all that matters

Teaching is our bread and butter. At the end of the day, other than projects and initiatives, the most important of all is as a math/English/science teacher, can you produce result? Performance ranking can be based on tt or by qualitative survey too.

Partially true. But I will say ranking is also about HOW you work with colleagues (especially KPs) since itís really about perception. Even if you do a lot, if their perception of you isnít good, you will never be good. But if their perception of you is good, the little that you contributed will be seen as Ďvery goodí work done and they will amplify it. KPI in teaching is really unquantifiable. Ranking is really perception and how you can convince majority of the KPs that you are good.
