Day by day, depression is creeping in. I don’t find any enjoyment in my work. I’m tired and I’m unsure how I’m still surviving. My administrative staff doesn’t support me. They intentionally moved me to this grade level thinking that it would make me quit. They know my strengths and placed me on my weakest one. Then hold me to this higher standard when the cards were disproportionately set against me. Why would they do this if they truly want our children to succeed?

I’m well aware that I could move to another school with a different administration. But why should I do that? This school is conveniently placed near my home. Why should I get bullied at school because a group of individuals not liking me? We all need to check our ego because it is not serving our kids.

What should I do? I love my kids, I love my school, and I love my team. It’s just unfortunate that my school leaders don’t like me. Depression is creeping in, day by day!
