I had to be picked up from work by my husband yesterday as was feeling awful, dizzy and just so not with it. I was supposed to be holding a parents evening after school , so as you can imagine my head of department was not happy. I have also called in sick today as still feeling awful. She wanted to know exactly what is wrong with me…it is so hard to explain what is wrong in a way that makes them realise that I physically can not teach today, and to top it off we have sports day tomorrow…in this heat! I know the head doesnt want me in his school, as i cannot give all that he expects, e.g. turning up for events after school that don’t finish til 9pm and at weekends. I do have a support worker for 16hrs a week, funded by AtW and that has really helped but the school now thinks this means i will not be off work at all. Basically, I am worried about my job, although part of me just wants to give it up. I love my kids and teaching them but not how I am treated by the management- actually ignored unless there is an issue!!
