If you still prefer some stability, some of my friends hopped to other Ministries or SB. I think even after 5-7 years of teaching, you'll still be considered young enough and there's still quite a high chance to be able to hop to these places.

Of course, there are also those who went to pursue their passion by starting from scratch in the private sector, or setting up their own businesses.

Many different possibilities, but one thing I noticed was that all of them were a lot happier and healthier after that

yup just do tuition. the only bad thing is if u r home tutor, may have to travel from places to places. but the workload confirm a lot lighter. And its easier to each 1-1. As long as there is psle, o levels, a levels, there will always be demand for tuition.

If u really dislike teaching or is burnt out, u can always make a switch, as long as u have a plan. Most ppl are scared to quit cuz this is an iron rice bowl. They are worried that if they quit, it is not so easy to find another iron rice bowl. But i agree mental health n physical health is still the most important.

i am also quitting end of the year, because i have come to the point where i dread to go to work. I want to be able to wake up feeling happy n look forward to each new day, n not just be happy during school holidays (my weekends are usually burnt marking as well).

Just don't quit and don't know what u want to do after your break. I have a plan n new found passion n i am looking forward to starting a brand new life.

Just wanted to release some tension here. If all goes well, I will receive my Connect Plan payment next year. However, I am just so exhausted and drained from teaching. I desperately need a break!!!

Right now, I am barely hanging in there. I know the holidays are coming but it brings no relief whatsoever.
Please take a good break. Mental and physical health are utmost important.

I've known of several fellow educators suffering from mental health issues due to stress from work. If need be, apply for NPL and take a break. It is not worth it to break down just for that ranking exercise, promotion, PB or CONNECT plan. Remember you can only offer your best when you are at your best state. Hopefully the system will be kinder to all teachers in time to be. Do speak to your close work friends who can offer you advice on what you can do. Take care and all the best.
