Basically, other than teaching, I'm also cleaner, administrator etc. I also don't want to abandon the children under my care, and I haven't found a new job yet.
At the end of the day, a job is a job, and unfortunately, we are meant to be replaceable.
While I understand that you love the kids, you still have to think about yourself. If you grow resentful of the job, eventually it will show as well.
Do look around at other options! You could still work in the childcare industry, but in a more friendly and supportive environment! :)
Importantly, if you have lost the love for your job, then I think it's time to begin exploring other options. You can also try to speak to your boss about the crazy workload, alternatively ask for a pay raise perhaps, considering the extra work you are doing.
But if it doesn't feel right, there's no point pressing on in an unappreciative and toxic environment. Time to start looking out and make your exit soon.
