Last month I wrote a guest post for Ken Wilson about my burnout experience. The overall message emerging from the post was largely positive – I did manage to fight my burnout and opted for a huge change, starting everything from scratch in a new country.
It’s been my third year in
and I’m afraid the big B might start knocking on my door pretty soon. To be on the safe side and just because I believe in teacher cooperation, here are my Istanbul
7 signs it is time for a new job:
- Your life is boring and you truly hate it
- You have nothing in common with your colleagues and / or secretly despise them
- You start thinking that even working at McDonald’s is a lot more fun than teaching
- You secretly devise ways of doing something very bad to your DOS/ Head of Department
- Your laryngologist advises you to change the profession – teaching is surely not worth losing your voice, is it?
- You see no point in preparing for your classes – sitting and chatting with your students still means they practise listening and speaking, right?
- You stop putting on makeup in the morning – who cares about the way you look anyway?
Just wondering - has anyone experienced that or am I the only one coming out?
