This will be interesting... since the vehicle encroachment into the classroom does not align with any part of the car park that the vehicle could have 'accidentally launched itself into the classroom'. Neither does the angle of the vehicle in the classroom lend itself to the hypothesis that it accidentally came to rest after selecting the wrong gear and/or 'pressing accelerator instead of brake' scenario.
As an experienced teacher it makes me angry that admin in schools can be allowed to let this happen. It is their responsibility to back up teachers with behavior management, especially a graduate. We need to hold admin accountable.
Wow, you sound like me in my last role. I was lucky enough to be ongoing in a great school, with great staff. The kids were difficult. And they knew that. And many things changed while I was there, but I couldn't keep doing it. I miss them enormously, but like you, I walked away and gave myself time to rethink things. I'm now doing CRT work, only a few days per week, while I get myself in the right headspace to try to go for a more permanent position. As a graduate teacher, it was really hard work. I got the job because not many others were putting their hand up for this particular setting. I'm glad I did it, but I just couldn't do it forever. It sucks that you're almost like an experiment though, they know that it's asking too much. Yet, I think sometimes the schools simply cannot do what they want to do, and have to work with what they can. It's not an ideal situation to be in.
