I found out years ago that when you do lots of “extra” it really is not appreciated the way you think it should be. The only thing our admin cares about is if there is a warm body in front of the students and it has been this way a long time. So, since you are now aware that your extra time, effort and talent are NOT appreciated at all, the thing to do, if you need to stay in teaching is to stop doing ANY extra at all. Don’t go to the voluntold class. Don’t mentor the new untrained and uneducated teacher. When the students come in have them get a textbook out and have them read and answer questions in the book. Do the minimum because it really does not matter. Save yourself, the structure of public ed now is toxic to its workers. And to be honest, do what I did, get the hell out while you are still healthy and sane.
