9 Reasons Teaching Is More Difficult Than You Think
For many this first teaching job comes at a time of great changes in your personal lives. Engagements and marriages happen, long term relationships break up, grandparents die, babies are born and mortgages are taken out. Life is tumultuous and you must work on finding that elusive work-life balance.Your heavy school workload is exacerbated because you are doing everything for the first time, and you struggle to understand which are the important tasks.It is going to take you much longer to write school reports than the other teachers because you have never done it before.
