Teacher Sue (made up name!)

I have never posted a comment on any website before but reading this thread reminded me of my year as an NQT, 15 years ago. It was probably the unhappiest year of my life due to bullying from the head of English, who was strongly supported by the Head.

I loved my PGCE year and entered my career full of enthusiasm and creative ideas. These were soon stamped out by a head of English wh...

If a fellow teacher is being unreasonable otr unfair over a particular issue, say out loud to them 'Your opinion is none of my business'. If it's someone you think can harm your career, say it inside your head!

A teacher who feels stuck in their situation. They feel stuck in the same room or area of the school, stuck with the same colleagues, stuck in the school, stuck in his/her role. They feel there is no way out, and they have no choice, like a prisoner.
