I've posted about the on-going drama I've been having with our head admin. Things got better but today they took a turn for the worse. I had the worst evaluation of my life and was put on a plan of improvement after 5 years of good evaluations. I've been busting my backside to do everything that is asked of me on this plan but it hasn't been what the admin wants. I'm absolutely miserable, I've turned into an emotional basketcase, my health is deteriorating and now it's starting to affect my relationship with my family.
There are no teaching jobs in my field in my area. Right now, we can't afford to sell our house and move (houses aren't selling here, we just bought this place in October and there's no way we can make money off a sale at this point.) I have no idea what other job I can take with my degree. I don't even have a Masters. We live in a very rural area where there aren't a lot of jobs unless I drive 45 minutes into the city to work, putting both my husband and I in a bind on taking care of our kids after school.
I don't know if I can tolerate the emotional abuse I'm being put through right now. I've had our uniserv director sit in on my meetings with my principal in hopes that it would help but I often walked out feeling like she was taking more of the side of the principal. I'm feeling sure that I'm going to lose my job. This is completely making my life a living nightmare.
What do I do, ladies? What on earth do I do with a teaching degree besides teaching? Thanks for letting me vent.
