How long will you teach?

Sometimes I wonder how long I will teach and what job I might do next. Do you ever feel like that?

After a looooong week of reports and making a mistake on homework I sent home and a seriously low student that is never on time (missing lessons!) and teaching English 'Club' every Friday until 5...sometimes I don't know. I love my students, and I do have very small class sizes, but. There's still so much to do. I enjoy (mostly) the added responsibility of English Coordinator, but someways I feel like I'm getting burned out. Again.

So how about you? Do you ever think you might go for a different job at some point?

Sounds like you're not pacing yourself well. Take a look at a book called Willpower. It talks about how we can usually see how much work we have to do and then pace ourselves accordingly.

As for another career. Well accademia is a little different - I sometimes feel that I am not really doing my job (because I am not in industry), and want to get out, but you have a "real" job.

It's been a tough year for me and there are moments when I say, "I can't do this." I know I really can and always will though. :)
