Has anyone been hired for a support position like instructional coach only and then put back in the classroom for multiple grade levels at the middle school while doing some of your actual job
Has anyone raised a baby/child while still teaching? Can it be done? I’m worried about money for childcare and fitting it all in schedule wise. I don’t want to derail my career, but a baby is a baby!

I’m struggling with some anxious thoughts today and just had a parent email asking to speak with me. It sounds urgent and now I can’t help but go through all the possibilities

How have you trained yourself to watch what you say 100% of the time when you are at work? I come from a very politically conservative background and am having trouble adjusting.
How do you “turn off” your teacher brain at the end of the day? I’m having a hard time disconnecting from the stress of the day and all of the issues I run into with students, parents, etc.

This isn’t my self care menu (mine is less pretty, lol), but I had the teachers I’m coaching make self-care menus last week, and I loved the outcomes! This is something that’s been so helpful for me.
