    We do not have a union in Texas. If you break a contract it is up
    to the district to accept or reject it. If they choose to refuse
    you to allow to break the contract you can lose your teaching
    certification. In general, a person can break a contract for
    medical reasons, family medical issues/emergencies, a spouse who
    has to move for their job position, or you are offered a position
    in administration or on a college level. Being unhappy doesn't
    count. You can do anything for a year. During this year prepare
    yourself to look for another position elsewhere. Consider all of
    your options. I've been in tough positions before and made it
    through. Sometimes (if you keep your head up) these challenges
    will make you a better teacher / person. It's all in how you are
    handling it. You say you are working 12 hour days? Why? Are you
    putting things on yourself that are unnecessary? Are you using
    your time wisely? What kind of relationship do you have with your
    principal? Can you talk to your principal? Can you have some
    things taken off your plate? My advice is to suk (spelled wrong on
    purpose) it up, keep your head up, take a mental health day when
    you need it, look at all of your future options, make a plan for
    next year, and get through this year. Good luck. Mae
