I’m at the end of my rope. My AMD went on maternity leave a month ago and at this point, it doesn’t seem like they’re going to get a temp replacement. I’m expected to work up and put together plans for 2022 almost all on my own while taking time to train new AMPs and MPs. My director expects me to delegate to them when they have little to no background. I know I should probably start looking elsewhere but I feel like with the Great Resignation, it’s going to be the same anywhere else.
Weird. 32 and only started thinking a kid might be fun to have with my boyfriend but also thinking “nahhh”. Going to be a fun 10 years figuring that one out 🤔
What is your max class size for the year? Is that number based on a virtual or in person classroom?
Nothing new here I guess, but still putting it out there... I am an educated, smart, successful woman. But these days I see myself as a mother of two who is barely surviving at life when she is used to “killing it” at work. Kids are not learning anything new, house is a mess, unlimited personal projects on hold, personal grooming is not even on the agenda and to make it all worse, have a personal goal of weight loss but am actively working against it.

Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown. Gave him 3 minutes to calm down and rejoined the zoom call. He settled down and adjusted his tone. Do you guys think I need to report to HR this behavior or just let it go? I’m a professional not a child to berate.
Husband only gets 2 weeks of paternity & I said I would want a FT nanny to help once he goes back to work. He said his parents (retired) could just stay with us & help out. 😱

So, I had to be away for two days. On my way back into town, I stopped at my classroom, just to make sure it was still standing. The sub had rearranged my stuff and taken candy (that I had intended to give to the office workers) and said she gave it to one of my classes. I am livid. Am I over reacting?
