Planning on taking 2+ months shared parental leave. Can’t wait to have that length of time with my family, but also pushing for promotion at the same time. Any advice on how to play it/communicate it?

It’s tough. I got passed over and the promotion went to another. Eventually made it to ACD but the cost was time. But looking back, I wouldn’t have done it differently.

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
