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 have an 8 year old and a 3 year old. It absolutely can be done! My motto... when school is out, it’s family time. Every once in a while I bring school work home but I won’t touch it until everyone’s in bed and again it is rare!

I have a 6 year old and 10 month old. It's exhausting, but definitely doable. My husband is a cop so his schedule works well with mine so we don't spend a fortune on day care. Finding a good day care was the hardest part, honestly. I don't bring work home and I do my best to focus on my own kids when I'm home with them.

I’m in my 16th year teaching and I have a 13, 12, and 8 year old. It can be done. Just like every other career, it requires balance. In fact, I feel like Teaching is a great career for parenting because I have a lot more time with my kids that I would in other careers.

Yes, it can be done. Make sure you have a good support group of friends and family who can be there when you have to work. Also including your principal and colleagues by letting them know helps a great deal. It will be hard at times, but you can fo it.

I'm about to have a baby and feel the same way. I'm thinking I might not go back 😩

Need some advice/ thoughts: a year ago the the person I thought it was the love of my life dumped me. She went radio silent and hasn’t spoken to me since.

About three weeks ago people stated posting summer get together pics and she didn’t comment on any of them. And then another classmate posted a Muslim holiday post…no comment. And she always comments on those. Continue:
