How is it going Robin,
I'm very sorry to hear about your "burn-out." Have you tried taking off work for about a week or two? I'm sure your dean understands the need for a much needed break. Yes, a year contract is a lot, but your mental-wellness takes precedence, right? You can probably eliminate over exhaustion if you give yourself adequate bed rest and some leisurely activity, (i.e., swimming; fishing; sightseeing; strolling around the mall; have a nice lunch with a friend-make sure it's a clean food and enjoying a scoop of ice cream). Get well soon and have a nice summer!
How are you Robin,
You've heard of Karaoke singing, right? Why not try being silly and the silliest professional singer you can ever be with friends and Karaoke singing---a very popular relaxation pass time activity in Asia. You are in a terrific area to enjoy the water in that beautiful Pacific Ocean. Bring other teachers with you out---for a day of scuba excursion---lay in the sun---enjoy snarling---and wonderful food. I don't think going to Paris is economically prudent for you to do right now---since you are finishing up just a year left on the job. You'll need at least a week or two to stroll down streets of Paris and for sure, expect energy exhaustion. You are overwhelmed by the school demand of your time---relaxation is what you need via de-stressed self-therapy.
Philippines isn't that far away from you and I have heard they have the nicest beaches and other fun things to do for their tourists. Try googling Boracay Beach among many other lovely turquoise oceans to enjoy there. Your flight at best could be less than an hour or less and the summer vacation costs would be less than going to Paris, for sure. I would definitely take friends there with you. Enjoy summer off days and be sure to remove your mind and self away from work. My book should be out on Amazon or direly from the publisher itself to order by the end of June---just to update you on the book progress. Get plenty of rest and pray for wisdom.
When I had a very challenging teaching situation and a contract that I was stuck in and felt like I was approaching burnout, I took a very active approach to my own professional development, which helped me a lot. Drawing on what I learned in my MA program, I treated that time like a second practicum and gave myself specific professional development goals in the six areas of focus from my MA program (which were learners and learning; teachers and teaching; language; culture; self and others; and educational communities, institutions and professional life). Thinking deliberately about what was in my control helped me feel like everything wasn't only awful (although at times it still was awful, there's only so much you can do in a truly bad teaching situation) and it gave me sense of forward progress that was really vital to getting me through to the end of my contract, plus I got to keep my sense of professional integrity intact, which from your responses to others sounds just as important to you as it was to me. It seems counter intuitive, but I learned a lot that year, got through it, didn't break my contract and came out the other side as a better teacher with a really cool classroom research project I would t have undertaken otherwise. Find the places where you can fit your passions and creativity into the constraints you have and really lean in to those. If you're interested, send me a message and I can share my specific goals with you as well, if you'd like inspiration.
Two other things to support this deliberate goal setting were to find something I was really excited about and line it up for after the contract finishes (for me, this was a great next job, but it could something like a visit home or a vacation to a place you're really excited about as well). The other is to set clear boundaries between the time you spend on the job and the time you have for you. Try to stick to only working for the hours and tasks you're paid to do, and not letting them creep into your off time (which is so easy to do as a teacher!). When your teaching situation is as difficult as yours is now, that firm border is vital and can really help preserve your mental health.
I'm sending you lots of good energy and am hopeful you can find a way through this that works for you! You've got a whole community of people here to support you, and you should give yourself lots of credit for reaching out and crowd sourcing ideas to help. It can't have been easy to admit this publicly, but doing so helps the whole community deal with this very important issue, so the next person who searches for burnout on my TESOL has a wealth of ideas to draw on, even if they don't have the courage to post about their own situation. There's one concrete thing you can feel good about in the midst of this. You've created a valuable resource by reaching out!
