How many hours a day does a state school English teacher work?
I am a secondary English teacher working in an independent school. I currently work about 10 hours a day not counting parents evenings, open days, etc. My husband and I are thinking of relocating. I want to leave teaching as I am not coping well with the stress and pressures placed upon me by a very demanding head teacher who appears to have no sense of a work/life balance. We have two children so I am unwilling to spend every waking hour working which I feel I could easily do. My husband - a music teacher - says he is willing to go back into the state sector. I am not due to the behaviour and marking workload. He currently works about 8 hours a day.
Any English teachers out there - how many hours a day/week would you say you work?
When I tell my husband I am unwilling to go back to the working until late every week night and also at the weekends he says that I wouldn't have to and I just need to cut more corners. What do you think?
