Stay or Quit
I was a teacher in a primary school before I took up a degree in TESL. When I graduated, I was sent to a school far away from my present home but it was just about half an hour drive.
I was teaching the Form 1 and Form 2 students but I had to be a form teacher. When I was teaching in the primary school, I didn't need to be a class teacher at all. I didn't like it..
Ok, never mind. Soon I got used to it and I love my life there. It was fun teaching the students even though they were not too good in English. I love to bring the laptop and projector to my classes as teaching through computer was so much fun.
However, I dreaded the drive to school. So I applied for a transfer back to my present hometown. I applied for the fourth time before I finally got it.
I thought that I would be happy in my new school. But I were not. I was given all kinds of responsibilities which I felt was too much. Worst of all was I was given Form 5 classes. For the past 5 years, I was only teaching the Form 1 and 2. I should be given a follow-up. Say Form 3, then form 4.
I appealed to the Headmistress but nothing was going to change. Then, there was a turn in my life. My husband's brother wanted to break away from the business partnership so I was asked by my husband to help him in his business.
I thought that it was good for me to just quit and help my husband instead. Decision made and I started to work in my husband's shop..
But there were a lot of complications while working with him. Should I stay or quit?
