kira656 I think that teachers are making a lot of work. But sometimes it is rather hard to study and I am using do my java homework because I am feeling that it is really had for me. Such a solution is a pretty good way to overcome different problems with studying.

just ranting

I just want to say.. its nice reading everything on this forum and knowing Im not the only feeling a certain way towards the system.
Dont get me wrong, I love teaching, its very rewarding. In fact seeing the students become what I look forward to the most in any working day (sometimes, not when they piss me off).
But the way the system is.. I believe i dont need to say more right?? Everyone here understands.
My contract ended in april this year, so did my battery (my mental health and motivation to work etc). The endless admin work.. unappreciative parents .. useless meeting .. not to mention millions of other small things (that I cant even think of right now because theres just SO MANY OF THEM).
To be honest. no amount of pay can justify the amount of physical and emotional burden being placed onto teachers. Its really not healthy lah.
Everyday I think of leaving the service, because if the passion is teaching, moe is not the only choice right? Just feeling quite meh, this is how they drive teachers away from the service!

Very hard to be back to service. They have excess teachers. So many schools are merging.. One of the KPI for SLs would be to get rid of dead wood.

Adjunct? Usually towards end of may then they will contact because the school will still have staff shifting around etc. Especially for adjuncts who may leave the school, which then makes the demand higher

I think it's a very big part of why young teachers leave, and why older ones lose their purpose.

Yet many leaders I see are exactly the source of the problem. And hence the issue continues to perpetuates.

We should all do the right thing and stop all the wrongdoings when we see it.
(I know it's easy to say. But hey, one starfish at a time as well.)
simple reason.Many of them (not all of course) got to their position precisely because of this...hence rot starts frm the top...and the top came frm the bottom. hahaha
never ending cycle

Wasn't a scholar (took the old NIE Education degree). If you work hard enough (or harder and / or smarter enough, it is possible. But yes, scholars are deliberately given bigger portfolios to justify their faster promotion. Whether they do it well, though at times they can't lead for nuts and merely get by because farmers tank the project.

I also see some overseas scholars (mostly the PE or Art/Music teachers) who remain as teachers. So yes, being a scholar does not necessarily mean that you get leadership immediately as well.

But at the end of the day, as long as SLs like you, see potential and want to groom you, that seems to be the most impt factor.
