I basically tried to resign from my job and my principal said she didn't accept it. I called the central office and they said I could get out of my contract if I talk to the asst. superintendent.
 
My principal basically made light of my situation. She said I need to pray on it and honor my obligations. I have nothing to be depressed about. I have food, clothing, a place to live, etc.
 
For the heck of it, I will just not show up tomorrow if I can't get in contact with the asst. superintendent.
 
I hate my principal.

Can you get a letter from your doctor justifying your mental illness(es)?

Just a thought.

I probably can get one. I have to go to my doctor tomorrow. I won't be going to work. Teaching is the root of all of this. Then I got even more POed when she said "what are you going to do if you quit? Go home and sit in the dark?"
 
I can't even say what I think about her on this board.
 
I will get a letter and leave it alone.

HOLD UP, BUBBLYBOO!
 
You may do permanent injury to your professional work history if you don't handle this properly.  I know your principal seems like a jerk, but you probably need to take a deep breathe, and slow down for a minute.  It sounds like you are in panic mode, so you're willing to do anything to get out of the situation. 
 
This situation probably didn't become intolerable overnight, so handling it more slowly would be advantageous.  You need to follow the proper procedures listed in your teaching contract, usually through human resources.  If it takes a note from your doctor, emphasize the need for a break due to some unspecified stress, but don't have a "return to work" date included.  That way, if the note goes into your personnel file, you won't be seen in a negative way. 
 
If you just walk off the job, you are pretty much killing any chance you might have in the future for another teaching position.  I know you may feel like you never want to teach again, but you may not feel that way a while down the road.  Regardless, you don't want a black mark on your work history if you ever are ready to go back to work in any field.  You never know if your references will be checked or not.
 
Good luck and let us know how you are doing.

Hi Bubblyboo, I am in TOTAL agreement with Leigh Ann here.  You worked hard for your degree and even though you are in a stressful work environment at the moment you do need to follow the correct methods of resigning from your position.  Don’t just walk out as Leigh Ann stated you could and most likely would be doing irreversible harm to you ever being able to go back into this field again in the future.

Get a note from your doctor if that is what you need to do, and perhaps go over your teaching contract and the terms of resignation...I don’t know much about how the teaching field does these things...I'm sorry.  But I don’t see how your principle can deny your resignation...also are you union?  I am thinking too that the things this person has said to you cross the line...is there a person higher up you can call on them?  You have a valid disease and that is discrimination in my opinion by her comments.

Well, I already told them I will not be coming back. I will get a letter from my doctor and send it to them today in the mail. No, I am stupidly not in a union. I should be the way teaching seems to be a slave market. I am just going to send the letter and be done with it. I dont want to hear anymore abusive comments from her. I took enough of that then and the 4 months I taught there.

I am so sorry to hear about the hard time you have been having. There is nothing worse than doing a job you hate. I can relate to that one! If you have sent the letter from your doctor that should help the situation. I have never heard of a company not 'letting you leave' but Im sure it can happen. I hope that leaving your job makes you happier in yourself. It will hopefully be a big wieght off of your shoulders.

Keep in touch and let us know how you get on
Good Luck

Just a thought.....Your school district should have a medical leave of absence policy even if you've only been there four months.  You should check with your Human Resources department to see about specific paperwork, if you choose to do this.  I'm just thinking it would give you a chance to rest and heal from the stress without losing your job.  Then, if you want to go back and transfer to another school, you would still have a contract.  Just a thought if you're looking for other options.  Hang in there.  I've worked for crummy principals, too.  It just makes it so much better when you get a good one!

I got a letter from my doctor to send to my central office and principal. I can't teach anymore. I cannot deal with it. This would be the best way for me. I already feel happier and feel this is the best decision I could have made.
