Mentally and emotionally tired

I am tired. I feel like I could have written the previous two posts about students not doing the work and the teacher being held responsible for it. If online teaching becomes permanent, I need a new job...

Iím having a really hard time getting any planning or grading done (not to mention trying to teach virtually) because Iím just so over all of this.

I feel the same as all of you. I started feeling rested and re-charged over Winter Break but the last three days in particular have just done me in. Iím exhausted but canít sleep, hungry but canít eat, butt hurts from sitting all day but canít get up, etc. Iím so done with online teaching it is draining me of any joy and happiness in all aspects of my life, personal and professional.

I feel the same - this is physically and emotionally draining.

Working remotely is mentally exhausting.

Taking care of my terminally ill mother is mentally & physically exhausting.

Being away from home since August is mentally exhausting.

I decided to take sick leave. Thereís only so much mental exhaustion a person can take.

There is talk of virtual learning continuing this year with no staff restructuring. Apparently the district thinks we can continue doing two jobs indefinitely. I'm already looking at jobs outside of education in case I need to leave. I cannot do this forever.

I am exhausted too. Virtual teaching is demanding and draining. I was hanging in there okay this year but for some reason....it just hit me this week that I can't do this much longer. Ready for brighter days.
