I have a 12yr, 3yr, and 1 yr old. I just completed my 5th year. I struggle with working mom guilt. Teaching requires so much time and dedication. I LOVE my job, but feel like I am sacrificing too much

I feel your pain. I have a 6 and 9 year old and teaching sucks all of my energy... it’s difficult, but I just push through. It’s not healthy. I’m sorry I think a lot of women go through the same thing. Sometimes we just need to say stop and walk away from our work load. Easier said than done!

My kids are 13, 4, and 2. I also just completed my 5th year teaching. I came from a 10-year career in banking and my hours were worse then. I was away from my 1 kid (I just had 1 then) way more then than I am now. Try to think- it could be worse if you weren’t a teacher. At least you’re with them a good amount of time compared to other professions. Don’t feel guilty. Feel thankful to have a job you love! :)

Thank you for your reply. I need the reminder that this job, as hard as it is, does allow me to spend more time with my kids.

This past year, I really made an effort to be mom when I got home and hang up teacher hat till later when I could do work. Something has to give but I felt my own kids were getting short changed compared to my kids at school. It meant getting behind a little in grading but my own kids deserve the attention also. This coming year will be my 20th and I have a 15 and 13 year old who are extremely active in sports

Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?

This big 4 always carry tapes to measure your performance. 2. I recently joined a witch company and here are my inputs A. Latest tech stakes but slow pace of work B. No long working hours (gov job)
